Disaster risk reduction and the post-2015 development agenda: agenda for the Asia-Pacific

Source(s):  All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI)

This short discussion note, intended for the Global Thematic Consultation on Disaster Risk Reduction and the Post-2015 Development Agenda, draws attention to the local and grassroots issues faced by poor and vulnerable communities across the Asia-Pacific region which may not have otherwise reached the post-2015 development agenda consultations. This note offers six concrete focus areas, including human rights protection (especially child and youth rights), accountability and governance, the over-monetisation of risk reduction, and the need for increased national focus on financing disaster risk reduction measures.

The note was prepared by the All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI) based upon its work with local partners at the ground level in India and in the Asia-Pacific region.
