FAO's methodology for damage loss assessment
This paper presents the FAO Damage and Loss Assessment methodology as a framework for identifying, analyzing and evaluating the impact of disasters on agriculture, including crops, livestock, aquaculture, fisheries and forestry. Its potential is explored as a strategic tool for assembling and interpreting new or existing information to inform risk-related policy decision-making and planning. Furthermore, the FAO methodology is presented in the larger context of the current global resilience agendas, such as the Sendi Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR), while its linkages and complementarities with similar approaches are explored. In addition, the flexibility of the methodology in terms of estimation and data needs, as well as its ease of use and wide range of applicability are emphasised.
