Austria National Platform


The Director General for National Safety requested the National Management for Crisis and Catastrophes to form a subgroup for the establishment of a national Platform in the Framework of ISDR in 2013. This subgroup organized several events in order to investigate the readiness of potential partners to contribute and cooperate with the future National Disaster Risk Reduction Platform. Together with the Austrian representation of the World Bank Group, an expert meeting with 300 participants was organised in 2016. The Federal Chancellery and 6 relevant ministries signed an administrative contract in 2017 as a basis for the constituent meeting planned for 7 June 2017.


The Federal Chancellery and the following ministries are the founding members of the platform: Federal Ministry for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs, Federal Ministry of the Interior , Federal Ministry of Health and Women’s Affairs, Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology, Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy.


All arising costs will be carried by the partners undertaking the actions defined in the action plan.


The platform supports the implementation of the goals of the Sendai Framework.
