Governments and the UN
are drawing up a disaster risk action plan to succeed the Hyogo Framework
for Action (HFA). A new agreement – HFA2 – is due to be signed in March
This event will explore how the private sector can engage in disaster risk reduction within this new agreement.
The event is the first in a series on 'Rethinking international policy for reducing disaster risk' hosted by ODI and The Climate and Development Knowledge Network. Later events will address some of the following issues:
- Use of risk assessments
- Fragile states and conflict
- Effective governance
- Gender-sensitive Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)
