This document presents some local reports of progress on implementing the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), with strategic recommendations for more effective implementation. It reports on the second phase of the 'Views from the frontline' programme, focusing on 'local risk governance'.
The study identifies a growing gap between the HFA and its implementation at the frontline where disasters impact. It highlights that much is being done at international and national levels to develop understanding, policies and plans, but that consistent progress in local implementation – reducing the vulnerability of those in urban neighbourhoods and rural localities – remains beyond reach.
