The Head of United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), Margareta Wahlström, welcomed the Russian Federation’s declared intention to making the promotion of integrated disaster risk management one its five priority areas during its G8 presidency.

The Russian Federation stated that it will channel all available efforts into developing a new global agreement on disaster risk reduction to succeed the existing Hyogo Framework for Action which expires in March 2015.

UNISDR and its partners will support Russia’s objectives that include global management of natural and man-made disaster risks.
