UNDP increases support for Disaster Reduction

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has announced its intention to double the overall support for disaster reduction over the next five years and adding five countries per year to the "growing list of countries on track to becoming champions in disaster resilience”, as Helen Clark, UNDP Administrator, said this week.

She also stated that the Hyogo Framework for Action, the international agreement on disaster risk reduction, which expires in 2015, must link to other processes. "2015 is the date for achieving most of the Millennium Development Goal targets which have guided international development since 2000. Disaster risk reduction needs to become central to mainstream development planning and action, and be reflected in discussions of the overall post-2015 development agenda," she said.
