The core mandate of the UNISDR Europe includes awareness-raising activities in disaster risk reduction, advocacy through policy formulation, the dissemination of guidelines to assist in the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), promotion of the establishment of national platforms for disaster risk reduction, enhancement of networking and partnership-building to contribute to an effective culture of safety and protection of all communities in Europe.
The UNISDR Europe will work through a growing network of national platforms to mobilize governmental actions in disaster risk reduction as well as directly with the governments in the region, as mandated though the HFA, and in particular with the UN Country Team members. It will also build effectively on the regional organizations, partners and networks to facilitate the effective implementation of Disaster Risk Reducion (DRR) strategies.
