Disasters and climate risks were not addressed as part of the original framework of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). However, the painful experience of the past years has shown that resilience is a necessary ingredient for the achievement of poverty reduction and sustainable development goals, and should therefore be integrated in the development framework that will replace the MDGs.

At the 2013 WBG-IMF Spring Meetings, the European Union, the Government of Japan, USAID, and the World Bank/GFDRR are hosting this fourth round of the Resilience Dialogue series to explore how disaster and climate resilience can feature in the post-2015 development framework.

The Resilience Dialogue series was launched at the 2011 WBG-IMF Annual Meetings, when major development and humanitarian partners agreed to institutionalize a series of events on the margins of the WBG-IMF Annual and Spring Meetings to monitor progress on the resilience agenda.
