Words Into Action: A Guide for Implementing the Hyogo Framework

The Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) was formulated as a comprehensive, action-oriented response to international concern about the growing impacts of disasters on individuals, communities and national development. Based on careful study of trends in disaster risks and practical experience in disaster risk reduction, and subjected to intensive negotiations during 2004 and early 2005, the HFA was finally brought to fruition and adopted by 168 Governments at the World Conference on Disaster Reduction, held in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, 18-22 January 20052. The outcome it seeks is “The substantial reduction of disaster losses, in lives and in the social, economic and environmental assets of communities and countries.” This is further elaborated into three Strategic Goals and five Priorities for Action.
