Considerations on, and lessons learned from, the international frameworks for disaster risk reduction:
Based on a comparative review of the main international frameworks for disaster risk reduction adopted by the United Nations since 1971, this paper aims to provide elements for future considerations on substance, form and review mechanisms for the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction (DRR). It complements the preliminary outcomes of the consultations on the post-2015 framework for DRR.
The review looks at how a number of questions have been addressed across those frameworks, and how they relate to the considerations expressed by the consultations on the future framework to date, such as: (i) integrating disaster and risk considerations in development planning; (ii) disaster management and risk management; (iii) exposure and vulnerability; (iv) multistakeholder participation; (v) natural hazards and manmade hazards; (vi) commitments and principles; (vii) financing for disaster risk reduction; (viii) integration of disaster risk reduction, climate variability and change, and environment and ecosystem preservation; (ix) private sector's engagement; and (x) the interface between conflict and disasters.
This document is the second in a series of instrumental papers intended to help national consultations and Regional Platforms deliberate on the content and form of the post-2015 framework for DRR and the commitments they need to make at the 3rd World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction to implement the post-2015 framework for DRR.
