One of the lesser discussed topics at MUN is disaster management and the prevention of disasters, however, it plays a vital role in may topics that are discussed, whether it be social, economical or political. the Hyogo Framework for Action is one of the few international action plans on the topic of disaster prevention.
In January 2005, 168 Governments adopted a 10-year plan to make the world safer from natural hazards at the World Conference on Disaster Reduction, held in Kobe, Hyogo, Japan.
The Hyogo Framework is a global blueprint for disaster risk reduction efforts during the next decade. Its goal is to substantially reduce disaster losses by 2015 – in lives, and in the social, economic, and environmental assets of communities and countries.
