The OIE Guidelines on disaster management and risk reduction use an all-hazards approach to the management of natural and man-made and technological disasters and suggest that a wide range of stakeholders from both government and society take action, adapting their interventions to meet local and regional needs.

They advocate the integration of disaster management and risk reduction measures relevant to national Veterinary Services into broader resilience and disaster management and response networks and policies, i.e. those that promote the health and welfare of animals, safeguard human and environmental health and assist OIE Members to restore and enhance economic and societal conditions in the aftermath of a disaster.
