Dear All,

The Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR) Conference 2011 came to a close Wednesday (November 2d) with the announcement of the 2011 Beijing Declaration for Integrated Research on Disaster Risk. IRDR Scientific Committee Chair Sálvano Briceño presented the document to delegates during the closing plenary on the third and final day of the conference.

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. Global Assessment Report on Disaster Reduction.
