2 Outline of the Presentation The Post 2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (HFA2)RationaleThe consultation process and outcomesConsultations for HFA2 at the GPDRRNext steps
3 Why Post 2015 Framework for DRR? The Hyogo Framework for Action is approaching its endGrowing human costs and economic losses due to disastersMore people and assets are located in areas of high riskRapid urbanization will further increase exposure to disaster risksIPCC Special report: changing climate will change frequency, intensity and timing of extreme weather and climate eventsUN 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 meetingsNational and localRegional (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 NGOsOn-line discussionsThematic 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 SRSGViews expressed in the section ‘Future outlook’ in cycle of the HFA Monitor
6 This shows you the main milestones of the process This shows you the main milestones of the process. The 3rd World Conference on DRR in early 2015 in Japan will expect the new framework to be adopted and implementation modalities discussed. The 5th Asian Ministerial Conference on DRR in Yogyakarta is one of the first key steps in bringing stakeholders together and identifying issues of importance to be addressed.In May this year, the 4th session of the Global Platform on DRR in Geneva, Switzerland will see deliberations of consultation outcomes to date and the preparation of the 0 draft afterwards.Also in May, the High Level Panel, co-chaired by the President of Indonesia will submit a report to Secretary-General on post-2015 Development Agenda. DRR is expected to feature prominently in the reportThe drafts of HFA2 will be further discussed/consulted during 2014 including at the next round of Regional platforms (such as the 5thAMCDRR), preparing countries for negotiations and consensus building to adopt the framework in 20156
7 HFA2 Consultation process Two Phases:First Phase: from March 2012 to the Global Platform in May 2013Focus: broad substantive issues for a new framework for disaster risk reductionGPDRR: deliberations on HFA2 will consolidate issues and recommendations made to date and deepen the dialogueSecond phase: from June 2013 to the 3 rd WCDRR in early 2015Focus: content and format of a draft HFA2
8 Key issues and observations (1/3) Building on the current HFAPreserve and reinforce the core elements of the current HFAEnhanced Understanding of RiskReflect 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 CitizensEmphasis on views and capabilities of Local governments, mayors, community organisations
9 Key issues and observations (2/3) Economic Opportunities and Private Sector InvestmentRole and diversity of private sector engagement in reducing risk and building resilience, creating enabling environmentStronger Governance and AccountabilityAppropriate governance and accountability mechanisms, clear responsibilities across public and private actors, role and responsibilities of National Platforms for DRRLeverage Benefits of Integrated ApproachesFactoring 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 HFA2Concrete steps to prevent the creation of new risks, and accept the reduction of greenhouse gases as a disaster reduction priorityAdvances in Science and TechnologyMore effective interplay of science, policy and practice in support of disaster risk reduction provides an opportunity for collaborative learning and actionBuilding Women’s LeadershipWomen to assume leadership in promoting disaster risk reduction locally and nationally.
12 Engagement of the National Platforms in HFA 2 A number of National consultations conducted by National PlatformsEg. Alegria, Lebanon, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Sweden, GermanyTake the opportunity at GPDRR for dialogueIdentify 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 actionAchievements at the national level are translated to the local level: by building the capacities of local governments and community members to enable resilience buildingClose the gaps in policies and legislation which act as hindrance for swift implementationMulti hazard risk assessments, risk based planning and early warning systems with connectivity to the community levelAccelerate the focus on small-scale high-frequency disastersDRR 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.
