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...

Source(s):  Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU)

...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.
