A statement in which the International Federation of Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies (IFRC) and the National Societies of Red Cross and Red Crescent from countries in Asia and the Pacific recommend the following issues to be incorporated in the post 2015 framework for disaster risk reduction to support the strong cooperation and commitment of all stakeholders: (i) disaster risk reduction to be an integral part of the Sustainable Development Goals; (ii) disaster risk reduction to be mainstreamed throughout the Sustainable Development Goals; and (iii) integration of disaster risk reduction and resilience into the Sustainable Development Goals to address the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable.

They also call upon governments, private and public sector and other participants of the 6th Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction to: continue active engagement with ‘at-risk’ communities, local leaders and civil society; review and strengthen the implementation of legal frameworks to create an enabling environment for building community resilience; strengthen support to and investment in Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies as unique partners in building community safety and resilience; allocate more resources to and advocate for greater recognition of ‘silent disasters’; support and strengthen relevant and reliable systems that allow access to and the distribution of risk information and warnings to affected populations and communities.
