Just politicians rhetorics?: 7th Asian Ministerial Conference DRR

Is it just rhetorics? wonders Farah Kabir, Chair of GNDR, on the repeated mentions by the political establishment at the 7th AMCDRR on the need for partnerships and working on an integrated manner. Ms Kabir praised the ability of civil society to coordinate and speak with one loud voice at the Conference.

Coming together at the WCDRR in Sendai, Japan

There is excitement about 2015 but also apprehension, as it will bring major decisions on Disaster Risk Reduction, Post-2015 and Sustainable Development Goals and for Climate Change negotiations that will impact on the lives of everybody but particularly on the poor and the marginalised and are presenting inclusion challenges on communities that struggle to find a voice in these negotiations. Away from the main conference venue, different members of civil society organizations and NGOs were discussing lively on how CSOs do however connect to communities, bring their stories to the front and share research and development models that have given results. We left on the note that we need to work together at a regional level through the CSO roles in the implementation of the HFA 2 and related activities.
