The first Intergovernmental Preparatory Committee meeting (PreCom) for the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) is taking place Geneva at the Palais de Nations on 14-15 July 2014. This meeting is being organised to develop the future framework for disaster risk reduction.
To support its preparatory process, the United Nations Secretariat prepared a document (A/CONF.224/PC/6), which outlines suggested elements for the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction. Drawing from the report consultations on the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction, the document specifies the purpose of this new framework. In addition, to completing the Hyogo Framework for Action with three goals, document suggests guiding principles and new measures that could be included in the new framework.
