ISDR Policy Note, 2 June 2008
Partnerships that address particular issues or themes in disaster risk reduction are important contributors to the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR). The existing multi-stakeholder partnerships associated with the ISDR system, which include for example those for early warning, wildland fire, education, and recovery, have diverse origins and modes of operation. This Policy Note sets out proposals for stimulating the development of thematic partnerships into more formally recognized ISDR Thematic Platforms, as a means to enhance the work of the ISDR system and the implementation of the Hyogo Framework.
