Declaration of the advances in the Hyogo Framework for Action and recommendations for the post-2015 period

A declaration in which 154 organizations and institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean formulate proposals for the post-2015 period to address the insufficient analysis of processes which generate risk conditions when not taking into account the relevance of underlying causes; the limited analysis of the economic and social impacts of the disasters; the emerging capacity building at a local and sub-national level which corresponds to the problematic areas of governance; the scant participation of universities in research over risk and measures to reduce it; the limited participation of vulnerable groups in risk management policies; the lack of community participatory mechanisms in risk management processes and the weak articulation between risk management activities and plans and territorial strategies.

This statement was made at the Fourth Session of the Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in the Americas, held in Guayaquil, Ecuador on 27-29 May 2014.
