UN/ISDR Third Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Reduction

Based on lessons emerging from the Mid-Term Review of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), the meeting will discuss what the disaster risk reduction (DRR) framework will look like post-2015, both in terms of governance, resources, monitoring and compliance; and how it will fit with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and climate change framework. Prior to the formal opening of the event on 10 May, which will feature the participation of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, two days of key preparatory, donor, intergovernmental and coordination meetings will be held on 8 and 9 May.
