Disaster Risk Management approach which includes emergency responses to vulnerable groups is based on the human rights based approach and the “Leave No One Behind” principle. It seeks equal opportunities for all, involving respective sections of the population in realizing their rights and equal access to public services. The ultimate goal is to assist municipal officials in determining how disaster preparedness fits into the work of the municipality, identification of different types of disasters and disaster preparedness measures and address how vulnerable groups can be integrated and considered in disaster risk management. It consists of a number of steps municipalities need to undertake in order to develop a Disaster Risk Management Plan that incorporates the needs of vulnerable groups.
