Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai (Japan)
In 2005, the international community worked together to draw up the Hyogo Framework for Action for more resilient societies. Since then, there has been significant effort to move forward on the issues of risk reduction and disaster preparedness, and Groupe URD has been involved in these for a number of years. We will be taking part in the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction which is taking place in Sendai, from 14 to 18 March 2015. This will be an opportunity to take stock of the experience gained since 2005, with a view to adopting a post-2015 framework for action.
