Hyogo Framework:
Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR): The GFDRR is a partnership of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) system to support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA). The principal strategic goal of the HFA is to effectively integrate, in a coherent manner, disaster risk considerations into sustainable development policies, planning, programming, and financing at all levels of government. The GFDRR is managed by the World Bank on behalf of the participating donor partners and other partnering stakeholders. The GFDRR provides technical and financial assistance to high risk low- and middle-income countries to mainstream disaster reduction in national development strategies and plans to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) (Text extracted from the GFDRR home page).

EPOS: EPOS: European Plate Observing System
Research Infrastructure and E-Science for Data and Observatories on Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Surface Dynamics and Tectonics.
What ?
The European Plate Observing System (EPOS) is the long-term, integrated, solid Earth Sciences research infrastructure approved by the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI).
Why ?
The goal of EPOS is to promote and make it possible innovative approaches for a better understanding of the physical processes controlling earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, unrest episodes and tsunamis as well as those driving tectonics and Earth surface dynamics.
EMI: Earthquakes and MegaCities: EMI works with local authorities to build the resiliency of cities and municipalities to disasters. It has a tested methodology for integrating DRR and Climate Change impacts in local governance, with a particular focus on empowering the disaster management units of each city and municipal government to understand their risks, build their capacity to address those risk with appropriate tools, and generate support and mobilize action from other stakeholders on risk reduction. EMI supports the efforts of local governments in mainstreaming DRR in their core functions by engaging city officials, its citizens including civil society and peoples organizations, academe, private sector, and other key stakeholders in a participatory process that builds ownership, sustainability, and efficient inter-institutional coordination.
