The third session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction is gearing up as planning begins in earnest. The 2009 session witnessed a dramatic increase in political will to manage disaster risk compared to the first session in 2007. Many tools and successful pilot projects exist. But the main challenge is to scale up these actions and systematically modify development programmes and budgeting to reduce the risk in all sectors.
