Implementing the Hyogo Framework for Action in Europe Regional Synthesis Report 2011-2013

The main objective of this report is to identify key trends in terms of progress made and challenges faced at both national and regional levels through the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) 2005-2015: Building the Resilience of Nations and Communities to Disasters in Europe between 2011 and 2013 and to compare progress made, lessons learned and challenges to overcome as compared with those reported in 2011 and in 2009.

This synthesis report is based on reports submitted by countries and regional organizations that responded to the HFA monitoring requirements. Those countries that have yet to respond remain unrepresented. While in some countries consultation exercises were conducted as part of the review process, the reports are self-assessments by national authorities prepared by the designated HFA Focal Points. In addition, this report presents the findings of the first seven European cities to complete the Local Government Self-Assessment Tool, an effort to benchmark and report progress made in building resilient cities.

This is the last European regional HFA report to be published in advance of agreement on a successor to the HFA, as the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction scheduled for spring 2015. At that time a new instrument will be agreed upon and submitted to the United Nations General Assembly for endorsement. It is therefore hoped that this report will inform the consultations for how best to continue DRR work in the Post-2015 framework.
