Mechanism for International Science Advice for Disaster Risk Management
In the last week of March 2014, UKCDS hosted two days of meetings with senior representatives of international, regional and national institutions to discuss a new and strengthened mechanism to ensure science, engineering and technology are more effectively used in disaster risk reduction and the successor to the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA2).
The participants developed a joint statement on their commitment to work together to ensure science, engineering and technology are embedded into disaster risk management and also began to address how the future mechanism might work.
Attached is also the summary report of the discussion.
