and resilience as a key dynamic of sustainable development; (ii.)

Global Assessment Report includes contributions from UN Country Teams and UN organizations highlighting their experience in disaster risk reduction and building resilience; (iv.) UNDP and UNISDR will organize discussions and a report around disasters and conflicts to feed into the post-2015 development agenda process.
