Hyogo Framework for Action Midterm Review

The Hyogo Framework for Action Midterm review considers progress toward the key components of the HFA framework of 2005, where critical gaps were identified to serve as the basis of a framework designed to promote “reduction of disaster losses in lives and in the social, economic and environmental assets of communities and countries” (ISDR).

Specifically, the mid-term review looks at progress toward three key elements: 1) more effective integration of disaster risk considerations into sustainable development policies, planning and programming at all levels, with a special emphasis on disaster prevention, mitigation, preparedness and vulnerability reduction; 2) development and strengthening of institutions, mechanisms, and capacities at all levels, in particular at the community level, that can systematically contribute to building resilience to hazards; 3) systematic incorporation of risk reduction approaches into the design and implementation of emergency preparedness, response, and recovery programs in the reconstruction of affected communities.(ISDR)

While progress varies considerably across sectors and according to country context, one significant gap is the ability to demonstrate progress and impact of risk reduction measures at the community level. The review suggests next steps to promote holistic risk reduction.
