The international community has an unprecedented opportunity to strengthen global efforts to address disaster risk reduction, risk prevention and resilience building. But this will only succeed if coherent approaches are taken across complementary global frameworks and political processes: post-2015 development framework, Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA2), UNFCCC, and World Humanitarian Summit. This necessitates increased and coordinated action and advocacy by stakeholders across and throughout these processes.
In the post-2015 development framework, at least one specific disaster target is needed to ensure increased political support for DRR and global visibility and accountability for delivering integration of risk management in other sectors. These targets and indicators should be consistent with those developed for the HFA2, and could be delivered through monitoring under the HFA2.
