The Strategic forum with civil society networks: Consultations on a post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction

The Strategic forum with civil society networks: Consultations on a post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction was held in Geneva Switzerland from 10th to 11th February. This conference aimed at informing the civil society of the consultative process and identifying opportunities for engagement in the preparation of the 3rd World Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction and identifying civil society and community practitioner strengths and roles in the implementation of the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction.

 Duryou Nivaran was one of the input providers to the consultation programme. Following is an extract form Duyog Nivaran input paper themed “Women as a force in resilience building and gender equality in DRR”

It needs to be clearly noted that pursuing the 3 strategic goals suggested in the HFA2 elements2 are not ‘gender neutral’. 1) risk prevention and the pursuit of development pathways that minimise disaster risk generation; 2) risk reduction, i.e. actions to address existing accumulations of disaster risk; and 3) strengthened resilience, i.e. actions that enable nations and communities to absorb loss and damage, minimise impacts and bounce forward.

Strengthening Governance for Risk Reduction

Duryog Nivarans input to theStrategic forum with civil society networks: Consultations on a post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction.

Risk Governance or Disaster Risk Governance refers to the way in which the authorities, public servants, media, private sector, and civil society coordinate in communities, and on regional and national levels in order to manage and reduce disaster and climate related risks. Disaster risk governance can include land-use planning and building code regulations; tools for assessing disaster risk; and helping government institutions to take on the responsibility of managing disaster risk and recovery by helping to mandate institutional responsibilities; as well as involving vulnerable populations in the planning and implementation of community based measures.
