Expert consultation on the post-2015 framework for DRR
Twenty one disaster risk and development specialists from different regions and from academia, international organizations, NGOs and national disaster risk management organizations met at the headquarters of the Latin American Social Science Faculty (FLACSO) in San Jose, Costa Rica for an open debate and discussion on the past and future of disaster risk management.
The objective of the meeting, organized and sponsored by FLACSO and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) was to contribute to the scoping of GAR15 (the 2015 UN Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction), in particular to identifying key challenges to the effective management of disaster risk beyond 2015.
In this sense the meeting can and hopefully will contribute to informing on-going consultations and discussions on the Post-2015 Framework for DRR (HFA2).
The meeting brought together professionals from different regions and from academia, international organizations, NGOs and national disaster risk management organizations.
