Disaster risk management in post-2015 policy frameworks: forging a more resilient future


This briefing paper considers what is needed to strengthen the management of disaster risk over the next two decades and strategies to embed disaster risk management in the international policy frameworks to achieve this. Key points: (i) a failure to include disaster risk management (DRM) in the international policy frameworks to be agreed in 2015 could undermine progress and squander investments; (ii) given the predicted wide-ranging impact of disasters by 2030, action is required to ensure that DRM is mainstreamed in these policy agreements and is supported by an international DRM mechanism; and (iii) this will require a stronger evidence base, greater political commitment and efforts across policy areas, from health and education to economic and fiscal planning.
