The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) was requested to facilitate the development of a post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction (DRR) as a follow up to the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015. This paper highlights a number of critical elements that need to be raised during the consultation process to ensure the inclusion of people with disabilities since disability was not given sufficient recognition in the Hyogo Framework for Action.
