Eva in Indonesia and the South East Asia Team
have managed to successfully get older people included in the Yogyakarta declaration
on disaster risk reduction in Asia and the Pacific 2012
as a result of the work through the 5th Asian Ministerial Conference on DRR

Full declaration can be viewed below

http://www.preventionweb.net/files/29332_01yogyakartadeclarationdraftfinalcl.pdf

 

The older people and disability angle is a significant win
with only gender and child centred DRR being the usual inclusions.
Governments will have to report back in 2014 on how well they are implementing the declaration.

Special congratulations to Eva, who did an amazing job
even though only recently getting into DRR. Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Overwhelming support in Asia
for a new international agreement on disaster risk reduction

 

 JOGYAKARTA, 25 October 2012 - High-level delegations from 50 countries across Asia and the Pacific -- the most disaster-prone region in the world -- today united around a call for an international agreement on disaster risk reduction to follow on from the Hyogo Framework for Action* in 2015.

Margareta Wahlström, the UN Secretary-General's Special Representative on Disaster Risk Reduction and Head of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), today welcomed the outcome of the 5th Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction contained in the Yogyakarta Declaration.

Ms. Wahlström said: "This Conference has been a major breakthrough in ensuring that building disaster resilience and reducing risk are embedded into the post-2015 development agenda. The world has always looked to Asia for leadership in disaster management and the Yogyakarta Declaration outlines clearly what the region's expectations are for a new international agreement on disaster risk reduction.

"The tone for the week was set by President Yudhoyono of Indonesia when he voiced his fears that disasters could push millions of people back into poverty unless we take preventive action now to tackle the rapid growth in exposure of people and industry to floods, earthquakes and other natural hazards. Climate change is accelerating the frequency of extreme weather events."

The 5th Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, organized by UNISDR in collaboration with the Indonesian National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) closes today and was attended by 2,600 participants including delegations from 72 countries. Representation included two Heads of State and 25 government ministers.

The Conference outcome was unanimously agreed today at a full-plenary session. Key elements of the Final Declaration include: identification of accountability measures for effective implementation of a post-2015 Disaster Risk Reduction Framework; political commitment to deliver at all levels; awareness, education and public access to information; improved governance; the promotion of resilient investments; and the allocation of resources to build local capacity. Conference participants also resolved to hold consultations which will contribute to the development of a post-2015 framework agreement on disaster risk reduction.

5th Asian ministerial conference on disaster risk reduction (5th AMCDRR)

Building on past agreements and issues discussed in the earlier conferences, particularly in the 3rd and 4th AMCDRR, the 3rd Session of Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction, as well as Indonesia’s own experiences that reaffirms the importance of enhancing DRR implementation at local level as part of the strategic venue to build nations and communities to disasters, Indonesia proposes the following sub-themes for the forthcoming 5th AMCDRR:

1. Integrating Local Level Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation into National Development Planning
2. Local Risk Assessment and Financing
3. Strengthening Local Risk Governance and Partnership

Objectives

- To encourage stronger political commitment and investment for local action in disaster risk reduction
- To build on the findings and recommendations of the Global Platform’s Third Session which brought up the theme “Invest Today for A Safer Tomorrow – Increase Investment in Local Action”.
- To establish a practical and collaborative mechanism for building resilience at the local level among the countries in the Asia Pacific region.
- To promote local knowledge and practices in DRR as a way of enhancing local capacity in DRR
