UNISDR Annual Report 2014

This 2014 annual report is a mid-term report on the UNISDR 2014-2015 Biennium Work Programme. 2014 was a year in which much time was spent defining the future of disaster risk management. There were major gatherings around the world to weigh up the experience of the last ten years of implementing the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), and the work of negotiating the text of a revised HFA was formally launched. The UNISDR Strategic Framework (2012-2015) has four strategic objectives1) to lead and coordinate; 2) produce credible evidence; 3) undertake advocacy and outreach; and 4) to deliver and communicate results on disaster risk reduction.

For the 2014-15 Biennium Work Programme, these objectives were organized into five programmes1) International Cooperation to Reduce Disaster Risk; 2) Risk Informed Public Policy and Investment; 3) Urban Risk Reduction and Resilience; 4) Risk Sensitive Business Investment; and 5) Climate Resilience and Disaster Risk Reduction.

Reports for each of the five UNISDR regional offices are included to highlight progress at regional and national level. The report features an organizational performance update and progress achieved on the specific work programmes.
