This report presents the governance framework in Kazakhstan for managing disaster
risks. A wide range of disaster risks are present throughout the national territory,
primarily floods, landslides, avalanches, but also extreme cold and heatwaves. The
report reviews how the central government sets up a national strategy to manage these
disaster risks, and how a national risk governance framework is formulated and executed.
It examines the role of the private sector and other non-governmental actors in contributing
to resilience at a national and subnational level.
