National platforms for disaster risk reduction in the Americas: a critical analysis of these processes five years after the adoption of the Hyogo framework for action

United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction – Regional Office for the Americas (UNISDR AM)

This study identifies and documents the advances, obstacles and limitations of national platform processes for disaster risk reduction in the Americas. On the basis of this general diagnosis, it generates recommendations and a course of action to guide the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) system in the area of national platforms. This provides valuable inputs to the review of the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action.

This study is a result of a consultancy commissioned by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), as an active member of the ISDR System, in coordination with the Regional Unit for the Americas (UNISDR Americas), with the purpose of supporting the implementation of the HFA in the region.
