A Disaster Risk Reduction Roadmap for the World Meteorological Organization: final draft (version 2.1), 31 March 2017
The Roadmap is first and foremost a document that can be used by both WMO Members, partners and users to understand how NMHSs in partnership with other agencies contribute to increasing the resilience of communities, nations, regions, and the world under the above-mentioned frameworks, through a coordinated WMO-wide plan of action on DRR. It is hoped that this Roadmap will guide the Organization, in particular the NMHSs as well as key partners, in the development of its strategic and operating plans that fully take into account the contributions of the WMO community to all components and phases of DRM. The document is intended to provide a framework for how to strengthen NMHSs capacities to serve their national but also regional and global DRR stakeholders through leveraging the leadership of WMO and its network and activities at all levels. It will discuss the broad activity categories required to address DRR as one of the seven WMO priority areas within the Wf\10 Strategic Plan 2016-2019. Key features of this Roadmap are to leverage existing WMO mechanisms, activities and projects and to develop linkages to external initiatives in order to realise tangible benefits for WMO Members through collaboration and coordination at the national, regional and global levels. In this way, the document provides a means for the cross-cutting WMO DRR Programme to achieve its goals. This comprehensive, crosscutting set of activities will also contribute to the realisation of other WMO priorities such as the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) and capacity development.
