Unveiling the Post 2015 paradigm shift in Disaster Risk Management

The Post 2015 agenda will be built around three critical factors – the
shift from Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs); a new agreement on emissions following the
expiry of the Kyoto Protocol; and a new Hyogo Framework for Action.
This will also imply a shifting of perspectives and a greater emphasis
on disaster risk management, Dr. Pujiono remarked.

The realization that “disaster risk can and should be preempted,
prevented and managed” has implied that resilience has become an
enduring central theme. Monitoring of resilience implies that we need
pragmatic indicators, along with the inclusion of Disaster Risk
Management (DRM) into SDGs, Dr. Pujiono added.

The lecture was a part of a DPMM seminar series involving seven
organizations including UNESCAP, Department of Disaster Prevention and
Mitigation (DDPM), Thailand, International Federation of Red Cross and
Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), World Food Programme (WFP), World
Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), Asian Disaster
Preparedness Center (ADPC), and HelpAge. The seminar series will
continue till 28 March 2014.
