Drafting committe
At its second session, the Preparatory Committee created a Drafting Committee that was entrusted with the oversight and production of the Conference outcome documents: the Review of the Yokohama Strategy, the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015, and the Hyogo Declaration. The latter two were negotiated by the Committee in Geneva, then by the Main Committee in Kobe. The first meeting of the Drafting Committee was held on 9 November 2004 in Geneva, and was followed by several more meetings until 17 December. The drafting work was then passed on to the Main Committee that was created by the Conference in Kobe, and that finalized the two negotiated texts. The Conference took note of the Yokohama Review, and approved the Hyogo Declaration and Hyogo Framework for Action.
