Build a disaster risk reduction movement ISDR
system
  • The objective To reduce disaster risk,
    worldwide, focusing on nations and
    communities
  • The instrument Hyogo Framework for Action
    2005-2015
  • The vehicle ISDR system - movement

Schematic of main elements of the reformed ISDR
System in support of the
implementation of Hyogo Framework for Action
Nations and communities
National Platforms, Government agencies, NGOs,
local authorities, technical organisations,
community organisations
Direction through GA, ECOSOC, etc, specific
requests, support via ISDR Support Group and
contributions
Direct support to institutions, programme
implementation, technical advice
Global coordination mechanisms
Supporting mechanisms
UN Secretary General USG Humanitarian Affairs,
Management Oversight Board Global Platform for
DR and subsidiary bodies (PAC etc) ISDR
secretariat
ISDR regional and thematic platforms
International and regional organisations UN
Country Teams
Guidance, support, monitoring

Objectives of the strengthened ISDR
  • Added-value, coherence and coordination
  • (The primary aims of the ISDR system to link
    national, regional and international levels of
    implementation of HFA. Standardization of
    approaches and knowledge sharing.)
  • Increase political space for disaster risk
    reduction.
  • (Including finance, development sectors, MDGs).
    Conduct high-level advocacy.)
  • Define targets and indicators for the ISDR
    system
  • (To reflect high-level impact measurable goals)
  • Joint ISDR system planning and deliverables
  • (Global activities/results to support national
    implementation of the disaster risk reduction -
    including thematic areas such as early warning)

Shortcomings in Governance and Organisational
Issues Related to EW
  • Often isolated and technically based, not people
    centred, with weaknesses in preparedness and
    response
  • Often not well integrated into policy and not
    part of risk management approach
  • Some hazards and vulnerabilities not well covered
  • Lack of capacities in developing countries
  • Fragmented mechanisms for international
    coordination and action

6
5 Organisational Challenges
  • How to integrate vulnerability perspectives and
    broaden hazard-oriented approaches? To ensure
    early warnings lead to early action?
  • What means to build and sustain political
    commitment?
  • How to strengthen coordination among the various
    national and local actors?
  • Linking the multiple hazards cooperating and
    coordinating but also strengthened governance?
  • Mechanisms to strengthen international and
    regional coordination, including the
    International Early Warning Programme (IEWP)?
