    Hygo Framework of Actions Thematic Review that will form the 2015 Global Assessment Report (GAR)

    I was recently (April 2014) appointed to the international scientific review committee for the Hygo Framework of Actions Thematic Review that will form the 2015 Global Assessment Report (GAR). My role within the international scientific review committee involved peer-reviewing the manuscripts/reports submitted 2015 to the Global Assessment Report by renowned researchers, practitioners and policy makers. GAR aims to focus international attention on disaster risk and the need to manage and reduce it, and on the need to consolidate political and economic support to do so. It is produced in collaboration and consultation with many stakeholders, including United Nations agencies, governments, academic and research institutions, donors, and technical organisations and specialists. The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) coordinates and supervises the preparation of the GAR.
