Sharm El Sheikh declaration on disaster risk reduction

The Sharm El Sheikh declaration on Disaster Risk Reduction reflects the Arab disaster risk reduction challenges and puts commitments by the Arab States on the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction. New stakeholder recommendations for the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction from civil society and youth/children are also included.

The Declaration is the main outcome of the 2nd Arab Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, held in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, in 2014, and attended by 450 participants from 19 Arab states.

The Arab Ministers of Environment endorsed the Sharm El Sheikh Declaration in their 26 meeting in Jeddah in November 2014.
