This biennial work programme is the second under the UNISDR 'Strategic Framework 2025', launched in 2011. It covers the period 2014-2015.
UNISDR’s main focus in the coming two years is to facilitate and support the organisation of the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (WCDRR), in Japan 14-18 March, 2015 which will adopt a post-2015 disaster risk reduction framework. UNISDR will continue to lead and support the global, regional and national consultations that will shape the aim of the WCDRR and its outcome.
In 2014 and 2015, UNISDR will continue to prioritise implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015: Building the Resilience of Nations and Communities. This biennium also heralds the consolidation of UNISDR work process into five programmes, namely (i) international cooperation to reduce disaster risk; (ii) risk informed public policy and investment; (iii) urban risk reduction and resilience; (iv) risk sensitive business investment; and (iv) climate resilience.
