The future we want: disaster resilience

Source(s):  United Nations Department of Public Information (UN-DPI)

This fact sheet is part of the press kit produced for Rio+20 conference. It presents an overview of the situation, key facts, success stories and proposals in order to include disaster resilience in a sustainable development framework. Demonstrating the major challenge posed by disaster risk to sustainable development through facts and numbers, it features good practices from the Philippines, South Africa, as well as the success of the Indian Ocean tsunami early warning systems following the recent Indonesian earthquake. Among the recommendations, it calls for: (i) reinforcing the importance of improved understanding and monitoring of disaster risks; (ii) placing disaster risk reduction within the post-2015 development agenda; (iii) increased national, regional and international coordination for improved forecasting and early warning systems; and (iv) the adoption of a post “Hyogo Framework” and its integration into development policy.
