The Post-2015 International DRR Framework (HFA2)

Projekt abgeschlossen

In March 2015, the 3rd UN World Conference on DRR takes place in Japan. Its key goal is the adoption of a post-2015 international DRR framework (HFA2). This framework will be developed in substance during two Preparatory meetings (PrepComs) in Geneva in 2014. Beyond the HFA2 however, the WCDRR promotes the inter-connectedness with and inclusion of DRR in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals, the post-Kyoto Framework and the World Humanitarian Summit (May 2016). In line with its strategic objectives, SDC contributes to this process substantially and actively.
