Wetlands International calls for integrated water and wetland management to reduce disaster risk

Source(s):  Wetlands International

As an organisation with experience in wetland conservation, restoration and sustainable use for the benefit of communities worldwide, Wetlands International puts forward a set of recommendations for the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction.

Water-related hazards account for 90% of all hazards, and their frequency and intensity is generally rising. More and more people will experience water scarcity and suffer the impacts of major floods, droughts, storms and water-related diseases. The way in which we use and manage water resources is central to sustainable risk management.

On 20 October 2014, the Co-Chairs of the Preparatory Committee of the Third United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction provided a zero-draft of the post-2015 framework for serve as the basis for negotiations during the second session of the Preparatory Committee, to be held in Geneva from 17 to 18 November 2014.

As an organisation with experience in wetland conservation, restoration and sustainable use for the benefit of communities worldwide, Wetlands International welcomes the zero draft, and puts forward a set of recommendations for inclusion in the post-2015 Framework.
