The Declaration calls for commitments in key areas identified at the conference and in previous forums, naming integration, research, collaboration, global standards, raising awareness, education, and increasing funding as priorities. It also recognizes potential applications, such as the IRDR Working Groups, policy-making and advocacy processes, recommendations from the IPCC Special Report on Managing the Risk of Extreme Events, and preparation of the 2013 U.N.
