Implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action and the Pacific Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Management Framework for Action 2005-2015: report for the period 2009-2013

Regional synthesis progress report:

This report provides a review and analysis of progress since 2009 towards disaster risk reduction and disaster management in the Pacific region. Successes and ongoing challenges are measured against the global Hyogo Framework for Action’s (HFA’s) priorities for action and indicators and the Pacific’s Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Management Framework for Action’s (RFA’s) themes and key activities. Given the strong synergies between disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA), progress includes capturing relevant climate change (CC) related programs, initiatives and mechanisms across the region so as to put into practice the rhetoric surrounding the integration of these fields.

Progress has been summarised according to the following broad themes: governance and institutional arrangements, links between disaster risk management (DRM) and development, limited data and limited visibility of national DRM investments. Recommendations for the region include the following: (i) governance and institutional arrangements; (ii) recognise inherent capacity limitations; (iii) support community-based approaches to DRM and CC; and (iv) build on existing mechanisms, past successes and lessons learned. The report also highlights that progress is now proceeding at the regional level regarding the formulation of the integrated regional strategy for DRM and climate change 2015 including the Post-2015 Global Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

This report has been prepared by the Applied Geoscience and Technology Division (SOPAC) of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) through the information received from a range of sources including the primary contact points of national authorities on disaster risk management in the Pacific region.
