1 Status of the HFA2 process NATIONAL PLATFORMS CONSULTATION ON A POST-2015 DISASTER RISK REDUCTION FRAMEWORK 4GPDRR - 20 May 2013 Madhavi Malalgoda Ariyabandu UNISDR
2 Outline of the Presentation The Post 2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (HFA2) Rationale The consultation process and outcomes Consultations for HFA2 at the GPDRR Next steps
3 Why Post 2015 Framework for DRR? The Hyogo Framework for Action is approaching its end Growing human costs and economic losses due to disasters More people and assets are located in areas of high risk Rapid urbanization will further increase exposure to disaster risks IPCC Special report: changing climate will change frequency, intensity and timing of extreme weather and climate events UN General Assembly Resolution 66/199 requested UNISDR to faciliate development of a Post 2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
4 Developing Post 2015 Framework - Participatory and Inclusive Approach Consultative meetings National and local Regional (Africa, Asia, Pacific, Arab States, Europe, Americas, Central Asia and the Caucuses Regional and sub regional Platforms, Ministerial and other) By stakeholder groups (Mayors/local government, parliamentarians, Media, Private sector, vulnerable groups etc.) Consultations with communities and NGOs On-line discussions Thematic consultations (economics of disaster risk reduction, land use planning, science and technology, governance and transparency, etc) Integrating Post-2015 Framework for DRR consultations into major conferences at all levels (Rio+20, Post 2015 Development – Post MDGs, COPs)
5 Other reporting processes/mechanisms Findings from the Local Government Self- Assessment of disaster resilience under the Making Cities Resilient Campaign; The HFA2 Advisory Group to the SRSG Views expressed in the section Future outlook in cycle of the HFA Monitor
7 HFA2 Consultation process Two Phases: First Phase: from March 2012 to the Global Platform in May 2013 Focus: broad substantive issues for a new framework for disaster risk reduction GPDRR: deliberations on HFA2 will consolidate issues and recommendations made to date and deepen the dialogue Second phase: from June 2013 to the 3 rd WCDRR in early 2015 Focus: content and format of a draft HFA2
8 Key issues and observations (1/3) Building on the current HFA Preserve and reinforce the core elements of the current HFA Enhanced Understanding of Risk Reflect an enhanced understanding of risk as informed by the evidence and findings (GAR, IPCC, SREX, scientists, practitioners etc. on extensive risk, climate change etc.) An HFA2 for Local Governments and Citizens Emphasis on views and capabilities of Local governments, mayors, community organisations
9 Key issues and observations (2/3) Economic Opportunities and Private Sector Investment Role and diversity of private sector engagement in reducing risk and building resilience, creating enabling environment Stronger Governance and Accountability Appropriate governance and accountability mechanisms, clear responsibilities across public and private actors, role and responsibilities of National Platforms for DRR Leverage Benefits of Integrated Approaches Factoring disaster risk management considerations into urban, economic, territorial and social development, include clomate change challenges
10 Key issues and observations (3/3) Integrate climate change issues more fully into the HFA2 Concrete steps to prevent the creation of new risks, and accept the reduction of greenhouse gases as a disaster reduction priority Advances in Science and Technology More effective interplay of science, policy and practice in support of disaster risk reduction provides an opportunity for collaborative learning and action Building Womens Leadership Women to assume leadership in promoting disaster risk reduction locally and nationally.
11 Consultations at the GPDRR
12 Engagement of the National Platforms in HFA 2 A number of National consultations conducted by National Platforms Eg. Alegria, Lebanon, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Sweden, Germany Take the opportunity at GPDRR for dialogue Identify ways for a stronger role on Phase II of consultations
13 Phase 2 of consultations on HFA2 –Key elements of HFA2 will be prepared drawing on the consultations and deliberations at the 4th GPDRR; –In : consultations based on the key elements will be sought with countries, IGOs and stakeholders. –At the regional level, the 5th Pacific Regional Platform on DRM (July 2013) and 6th AMCDRR (June 2014) will be key forums; –In early 2015: final draft of the post-HFA framework submitted for consideration at the 3rd World Conference on DRR in Japan; –In 2015: UN Secretary-General submits a report on the 3rd World Conference on DRR (WCDRR) to the UN General Assembly along with a recommendation for the UN General Assembly to adopt the HFA2
14 Remaining period of HFA Accelerate implementation: urgency for accelerated and scaled-up action Achievements at the national level are translated to the local level: by building the capacities of local governments and community members to enable resilience building Close the gaps in policies and legislation which act as hindrance for swift implementation Multi hazard risk assessments, risk based planning and early warning systems with connectivity to the community level Accelerate the focus on small-scale high-frequency disasters DRR and CCA are integrated into socio-economic and development sectors, with greater attention on social equity, gender issues in DRR and other specifically vulnerable groups. The integration of DRR principles into major infrastructure projects, along with improved enforcement of relevant legislation such as building codes.
