Abstract

Building Resilience to Disasters in Asia and the Pacific: Resilience in the Global Development Frameworks

A Briefing Note for Policymarkers 2017 is a joint product of the Thematic Working Group on Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience (TWG-DR3) of the United Nations Regional Coordination Mechanism in Asia and the Pacific, co-chaired by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR).

This briefing note offers guidance to national policymakers and decision makers towards building their respective country’s resilience to disasters and to more effectively following through on the six global development frameworks. Although the perspective and focus of each development frameworks differs, there are common elements relevant to resilience building (10 common elements are highlighted further on). Policymakers can use these 10 common elements as starting points to establish coherence in their respective country’s efforts to follow through on the frameworks at the national level.
