Disaster reduction on the agenda of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change in Buenos Aires

“The talks that will take place next week in Buenos Aires on the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and its Kyoto Protocol, will be an important step forward,” says Sálvano Briceño, Director of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction secretariat. “Delegates and ministers from all over the world will speak about the source of the problem: greenhouse gas emissions. They will also consider for the first time the other side of the issue - how to adapt to and live with the new and increased risks that climate change is likely to bring. Disaster reduction, early warning and preparedness are key tools to coping with weather and climate extremes, now and in the future.”
