The role of parliaments in strengthening the solidarity of the international community towards the people of Haiti and Chile in the wake of devastating major disasters...


...and urgent actions required in all disaster-prone countries to improve disaster-risk assessment, prevention and mitigation:

This resolution, adopted unanimously by the 122nd IPU Assembly in Bangkok, 1 April 2010, acknowledges that both disasters and climate change hit poor nations and communities the hardest, and that disaster risk reduction for immediate climate change adaptation is a strategic step towards sustainable development. Among other concerns, it calls upon governments to make disaster-risk assessment an integral part of post-earthquake recovery and reconstruction planning, to ensure resilient critical public facilities such as schools and hospitals, and to make disaster-risk reduction a part of poverty reduction and of all planning and programmes aimed at achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
