Organised by GRF Davos in close cooperation with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR).

The 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC Davos 2014 which took place in Davos, Switzerland concluded successfully on Thursday, 28 August 2014.

We are pleased to announce the outcomes report of the conference.

The report consists of two major parts. Part I  provides a summary of the discussions of the post-conference expert workshop with  focus on science and technology, education and training, and implementation from a science and technology perspective (participants are listed in the annex part III).

Part II  shows all the various comments which have been provided by the IDRC Davos 2014 participants to the pre-zero and zero draft concept. The comments are listed according to the numbering used in the existent zero draft. Many comments are very much in-line with the existent draft and might also serve for confirmation purposes of the existent zero draft.

The outcomes of the IDRC Davos 2014 served as a science & technology input for the post-2015 framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (HFA2) and provided recommendations towards the UN World Conference WCDRR in Sendai, Japan.
