Legislators and scientists need to close ranks and collaborate in the quest to enhance disaster risk reduction (DRR) strategies globally, according to East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) Speaker Abdirahin Abdi, as reported by IPP media.

The EALA Speaker made the remarks when addressing parliamentarians during a panel discussion on Disaster Risk Reduction and Sustainable development held in Kampala, Uganda.

Dr. Feng Min Kan, special advisor to the UN Secretary General for Disaster Risk Reduction, urged governments to forge coherent approaches to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction by using the Hyogo Framework for Action (2005-2015). The Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) is a 10-year plan to make the world safer from natural hazards adopted by 168 member states of the United Nations in 2005 at the World Disaster Reduction Conference.
