A resilient future: UNISDR and IOM statement on zero draft of the outcome document of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) 'The future we want'


This paper provides some comments from UNISDR and IOM on the zero draft based on lessons learned in implementation of the Hyogo Framework of Action (HFA): Building the Resilience of Nations and Communities to Disasters and in IOM’s responses to population mobility related to environmental degradation and natural disasters.

It calls for: (i) any future framework for sustainable development to include a clear understanding and practical measures to reduce the risk of natural hazards; (ii) current and emerging risks to be addressed in setting the stage of the Rio+20 outcome document; (iii) the existing and ongoing review of progress by countries and partners in the implementation of the HFA to directly inform the assessment of progress in the implementation of sustainable development; (iv) prioritization of actions in disaster risk reduction and resilience; and (v) thinking clarification about the role of disaster risk reduction and migration in the
negotiations.
