The Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction (SRSG)’s proposed elements for consideration in the development of the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction

The SRSG’s proposed elements for consideration in the development of the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction aim to provide guidance and support for the preparation and deliberations of upcoming Regional Platforms and meetings for disaster risk reduction upon which the future framework will be built. 

The document draws on consultations of all stakeholders that began in early 2012, including online, local, national, regional and global events. Further guidance came from countries’ reports through the UNISDR HFA Monitor, the findings of the biennial UN Global Assessment Reports on Disaster Risk Reduction of 2009, 2011 and 2013, relevant deliberations of the United Nations General Assembly, as well as a growing literature and practice on disaster risk and resilience. 

The formulation of the proposed elements also benefited from the counsel provided to the SRSG by her Science and Technology Advisory Group, Global Assessment Report Advisory Board, Private Sector Advisory Group, Parliamentarians Advisory Group, and the Hyogo Framework for Action Advisory Group. These encompass over 60 senior government officials, Members of Parliament, scientists, business executives, lawyers, practitioners, and civil society representatives – all serving pro bono in their personal capacity.

The post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction will undergo the formal preparatory process of the 3rd World Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction (Sendai, Japan, 14‐18 March 2015) before it is endorsed by the Conference and transmitted to the United Nations General Assembly for a final endorsement. 

Note: To access the Suggested Elements for the Post-2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (June 2014) released in preparation of the intergovernmental negotiations of the first Preparatory Committee (PrepCom1) of the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, see the related link below.
