Words into Action. A Guide to Implementing the Hyogo Framework for Action

The Hyogo Framework for Action calls on the ISDR to "facilitate consultative processes to develop guidelines and policy tools for each priority area, with relevant national, regional and international expertise. " The present document "Words into Action: A Guide for Implementing the Hyogo Framework" is the first product generated to meet this call. It has been prepared through a long process of drafting and consultation that has involved the participation of numerous organizations and individuals in dozens of countries. Drawing on their expertise and experience, the Guide describes 22 tasks that are organized to help address and guide the implementation of the HFA´s five Priorities for Action.
