Disaster Risk Reduction: 2007 Global Review

 
A radical realignment of priorities in addressing the Hyogo Framework for Action are required if the growing population living in high risk conditions is to be adequately protected, the recently released UN/ISDR’s 2007 Global Review has concluded.

Current emphasis on saving lives has to be complemented by a vision of protecting and strengthening livelihoods and human development. While political momentum for creating new systems and laws for disaster risk reduction is building, the Review states that lack of dedicated resources from national budgets and trained personnel to implement plans, may inhibit progress in reducing risks.
