Thus, the perception of risk varies between different urban contexts in the world.

TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT a) the economic potential for address a process of integrated risk management through long-term urban planning; b) flexibility and adaptability of governmental authorities when projecting changes in the city; c) promoting opportunities for citizen interaction to reverse the trend towards individualism; d) strengthening horizontal cooperation among cities with strong capacity for action on the territory.

Added value for the Post 2015 Framework for 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Disaster Risk Reduction • How did your work support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action and main gaps in terms of Policies: It’s important to know if local actors manage or co-manage the risk, and if they understand the process as part of local development in a sustainable way. The difficulty in strengthening real and effective horizontal governance processes in social and political arenas is a cause of the slow progress on the objectives of risk management and mitigation. On this way, the main issue for the Post 2015 framework for disaster risk reduction is the real and effective capacity of authorities – public and corporative – to face with planning processes that include the disaster risk management as a long term strategy.
