The purpose of this framework is to guide the initiation, creation and sustainability of information and knowledge management for disaster risk reduction (IKM4DRR) at all levels in order to address current issues in information and knowledge management, and improve the impact, efficiency and interoperability of IKM for DRR efforts.
IKM4DRR enables and sustains informed decision-making for managing disaster risk and is essential for coordinated action. Informed decision-making needs a solid information and knowledge base as well as dedicated and skilled professionals.
This framework was developed by the IKM4DRR Community, and validated in the first IKM4DRR Workshop during the fourth session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction, on 20 May 2013, in Geneva, Switzerland.
