Transcript of Recommendations for post-2015 Hyogo Framework for Action

In solidarity with our partners we recommend that a future international agreement and framework for DRR should reduce underlying risk factors by … According to the UN 64% of the world’s population have been affected by natural hazards in the last 20 years.
These hazards are now changing and it is the poorest who are most vulnerable.
Disasters exacerbate poverty and undermine development.
It is therefore crucial that DRR is undertaken in partnership with communities by all national governments and supported by international commitments to reduce risk.
DRR should not stand alone, it must be integrated into the development agenda.
Now is the time to be ambitious and act, now is the time to develop an accountable and locally grounded post-2015 Hyogo Framework for Action that supports the post-2015 Millennium Development Goals and builds long term community resilience. Accountable to all stakeholders primarily the poorest and most vulnerable An DRR framework requires:
Agreed targets and milestones that are enforced
Regular multi-stakeholder monitoring from local to national
National Platforms that are inclusive, accountable and transparent
Building the capacity of the most vulnerable sectors/groups .e.g. Children, PWD, women, elderly CAFODs recommendations for a future international agreement for Disaster Risk Reduction Being accountable to all, primarily the most vulnerable “The environment will change and this is not going to stop, so people need to adapt”.

COMAL, Honduras Hazards are changing
Climate change is a reality and the poorest are the worst and first affected.

Ensure that hazard mitigation is climate change resilient.
Raise awareness of climate change.
Lobby for the rights of environmental refugees.
Prepare communities for more extreme unpredictable hazards.
Focus on realistic and sustainable approaches to risk reduction.
Work alongside climate scientists to reduce the impact of uncertainties.
Have a focus on land use planning and building codes. Ensuring that climate change is central to all future action. A new agreement must:
Ensure community and civil society participation and ownership.
More than participation but implementation and understanding.
Science enhancing the existing local knowledge.
Enhance the local capacity of community. A DRR framework requires:
Agreed targets and milestones that are enforced.
Regular multi-stakeholder monitoring from local to national.
National Platforms that are inclusive, accountable and transparent.
Building the capacity of the most vulnerable sectors/groups .e.g. Children, PWD, women, elderly. Having a local Level focus Being adequately funded Funding Lack of adequate funding is a fundamental barrier to change at any level.
DRR is highly cost effective as it can dramatically reduce the need for humanitarian relief and recovery.
It is recommended that at least 10% of all funding for development and humanitarian programmes in high risk countries is allocated for disaster resilience.
A new agreement should encourage economic incentives for the poorest regions. Being implemented through partnerships
between local and national actors. Ensuring the conservation of the
natural environment Strengthening the link between development and humanitarian action Underpining the post-2015 MDGs Multi-stakeholder partnerships between local government, civil society, scientists and communities.
But these partnerships should be led by local actors, not imposed by international stakeholders.
DRR implemented through partnerships led by local actors will be sustainable.
In addition local knowledge gained through experience can be supported by cutting edge scientific thinking, methods and technologies. "Together we are stronger"
