  • 1. GP UNISDR Featured EventGeneva, Wednesday 22 May 2013 Walter J. Ammann1CONSULATION DAY EVENTSCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL PLATFORMS/NETWORKS: ACIEVEMENTS AND FUTURE GOALSMonday, 19 May 2013, 08:30 – 14:30hRoom 14Convenors on behalf STAG UNISDR:• Walter J. Ammann, Global Risk Forum GRF Davos,Davos, Switzerland• Virginia Murray, Public Health England, UK
  • 2. GP UNISDR Featured EventGeneva, Wednesday 22 May 2013 Walter J. Ammann2• Implementing the HFA has led tothe creation of 34 thematicplatforms and networks.– the more science andtechnology focused risk andhazard networks,– implementation orientednetworks with coordinationefforts.SCOPE OF THE EVENT
  • 3. GP UNISDR Featured EventGeneva, Wednesday 22 May 2013 Walter J. Ammann3• Stock taking of thematic platforms andnetworks based on their presentation oftheir past achievements• Discuss the future role, in particular in viewof the potential contributions to the HFA2process.• Discuss how collaborative networks canproactively help generate knowledge andgood practice.• Discuss working models and assess valueadded (consult on the possibilities ofestablishing “UNISDR collaboratingcenters” on science as a multi-disciplinaryapproach to DRR (network of networks)SCOPE OF THE EVENT
  • 4. GP UNISDR Featured EventGeneva, Wednesday 22 May 2013 Walter J. Ammann4Each network will have the opportunity tobriefly present in 8 minutes with amaximum of 6 slides:• Goals, objectives and Members of thenetwork/ thematic platform (1 slide)• Major achievements in the past 5 years(2 slides)• Future goals and contribution to post-HFA 2015 (2 slides)• Possible synergies and overlaps withother networks and needs forcoordination (1 slide)• in addition: poster, table to disposematerial on a tableSCOPE OF THE EVENT

  • 10. GP UNISDR Featured EventGeneva, Wednesday 22 May 2013 Walter J. Ammann10Monday 20 May 2013, 15.00 – 16.50 Room3+4• The objective of the session is to explorecommon ground on substance for apost-2015 framework for disaster riskreduction (HFA2). Groups will answerthe following questions:• How do we build on the HFA and yetensure that we capture and formulateideas to reduce disaster losses over thenext 30+ years?JOINT SESSION WITH STAKEHOLDERS
  • 11. GP UNISDR Featured EventGeneva, Wednesday 22 May 2013 Walter J. Ammann11• What are your views on how best toencourage commitment amongstakeholders?– Whose engagement is essential?– What are the most effective and appropriatemechanisms to ensure a new decision-takingmodel?• There is a need to improveimplementation of disaster risk reductionactions within HFA2.– What mechanisms, tools or methods wouldyou consider are the best means of creatingthis enabling environment for DRRimplementation, especially at the local level?JOINT SESSION WITH STAKEHOLDERS
