阪神淡路大震災から10年たった兵庫県神戸市で、1月18日から22日まで「国連防災世界会議(WCDR)」が開かれました。インド洋で発生した津波の全容が世界を震撼させつつある時期に開かれただけに、各国や内外メディアの関心も一気に高まり、国際機関や160数カ国の代表が、津波の早期警報網の整備をはじめ災害に対する抵抗力のある社会づくりをめぐって熱心な討議を繰り広げました。最終日には5日間の討議のまとめとして「兵庫宣言」と、向こう10年をかけて災害に強い国・コミュニティを構築するための世界の行動計画「兵庫行動枠組2005-2015」などを採択しました。

The Conference was to take stock of progress in disaster risk reduction accomplished since the Yokohama Conference of 1994 and to make plans for the next ten years. The GA requested the UNISDR secretariat to serve as the secretariat of the Conference; a special unit for WCDR was established, coordinating the process of the World Conference. An open-ended Preparatory Committee was established, led by a Bureau consisting of five Member States representing the regional groups, plus the host country, Japan, as an ex-officio member.
