Pre-Zero Draft: Post-2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
On 8 August 2014, the two co-Chairs of the Preparatory Committee for the Third UN WCDRR, Ambassadors Päivi Kairamo (Finland) and Thani Thongphakdi (Thailand) released the pre-zero draft of the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction.
The pre-zero draft will serve as the basis for the open-ended informal consultative meetings, which the Co-chairs of the Bureau of the Preparatory Committee for the Third WCDRR, mandated by the first Preparatory Committee meeting held in Geneva on 14-15 July 2014, will carry out in September and October 2014. Based on such consultative meetings, the Co-Chairs will prepare a Zero-Draft for the second Preparatory Committee meeting, scheduled in Geneva, Switzerland, on 17-18 November 2014.

IRDR Response to Pre-Zero Draft
The international science community represented within IRDR recently provided an independent collective response to the pre-zero draft of the post 2015 framework for disaster risk reduction.
The text identifies three primary concerns articulated in the note according to the structure of the zero draft. Throughout we refer to the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reaction as the HFA II (Hyogo Framework for Action II).
