ORGANIZER(S): European Commission (EC)
Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 16 Dec 2013 Location: Belgium (Brussels)
The European Commission held a stakeholder consultation on the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction. The process aimed at contributing towards shaping a stronger common European voice as Member States (MS) negotiate the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction at UN level. It was clarified that the Council Conclusions will only recommend a position that can be taken on board voluntarily by MS given the non-binding nature of the international framework.
The stakeholder consultation centred on discussion groups during which participants discussed key issues to be addressed by the future framework. The aim was not to discuss new EU policy but rather to build on past EU policy achievements that have contributed to the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (new EU civil protection legislation, the EU disaster risk management framework, EU financial support and policy to disaster risk management in developing countries) through an action-oriented approach.
