Broadly informed by the document "Elements for Consideration in the Post-2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction" (UNISDR December 2013), this joint position paper is offered to national governments and international partners for consideration during the on-going conversations to develop the post-2015 Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA2). It draws from the expertise of a broad range of civil society actors and community practitioners working to strengthen the resilience of at-risk men and women, including the 38 representatives who participated at the Civil Society Forum in Geneva, Switzerland 10-11 Feb 2014.
