12 December 2013 20:36

An ad hoc working group comprising several members of the IRDR Science Committee (SC) and experts associated with the Programme, prepared a brief to inform the discussions of the United Nations General Assembly Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals. The OWG will hold its seventh session in New York, from 6-10 January 2014.

Issue Brief: Disaster Risk Reduction and Sustainable Development

The brief addresses the increasing recognition on the part of governments that the reduction of disaster risks is a foundation for successful sustainable development, and that disaster risk is a crosscutting issue, requiring action across multiple sectors. Read the full brief here [PDF 693 KB].

The IRDR’s brief is the first background document to appear within the disaster risk reduction cluster ahead of the OWG’s Seventh Session.
