In 2011 the Pacific region endorsed the development of an integrated regional strategy for Disaster Risk Management (DRM) and Climate Change (CC) by 2015 at a series of Pacific regional meetings. The integrated regional strategy is to succeed the existing Pacific Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Management Framework for Action (RFA) and the Pacific Islands Framework for Action 2006 – 2015 (PIFACC) which is guided by the UNFCCC. The process towards developing this strategy is commonly referred to as the ‘Roadmap’.
In the Pacific, the Roadmap process will provide regional and national inputs to the global consultations on the post-2015 framework for DRR.
The national consultation for a post-2015 framework for DRR was closely aligned with the 2011-2013 national HFA progress review which also contributed to the development of the integrated regional strategy for DRM and Climate Change, development of the Joint National Action Plans (JNAPs) for DRM and Climate Change and the development of Country Implementation Plans for the Pacific ACP States in respect of the EDF10 ACP-EU Natural Disaster Facility.
UNISDR, SPC/SOPAC and SPREP jointly supported the national HFA progress reviews in 2012 in the Pacific.
