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.
The document is based on the reports submitted by countries and regional organizations developed as part of the HFA monitoring requirements.
In addition, this report presents the findings of the European cities that completed the Local Government Self-Assessment Tool, an effort to benchmark and report progress made in building resilient cities. It is hoped that the lessons learned and challenges identified over the course of the HFA will inform the best approaches to the implementation of the Sendai Framework to achieve a safer, more resilient society.
