Title: Joint Civil Society Position on Post-2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
Year: 2014 | Pages: 12 | Size: A4
This paper highlights ten critical elements (with key practical actions) considered crucial to reduce disaster risk. It was endorsed by a broad cross-section of 2,100+
civil society organisations across the world that collectively felt that these should be substantive elements within the post-2015 DRR framework.
Broadly informed by the document "Elements for Consideration in the Post-2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction" (UNISDR December 2013), this joint
position paper was offered to national governments and international partners for consideration during the on-going conversations to develop the post-2015 Hyogo
Framework for Action (HFA2). It draws from the expertise of a broad range of civil society actors and community practitioners working to strengthen the resilience
of at-risk men and women, including the 38 representatives who participated at the Civil Society Forum in Geneva, Switzerland 10-11 Feb 2014.
