Reduction (UN/ISDR) has released its proposal in response to the Bali Action
Plan’s call for enhanced action on adaptation through consideration of disaster

with the Inter-Agency Standing Committee, while inputs were received from a
number of UN Agencies. The paper proposes that parties draw upon the Hyogo

Communities to Disasters, in the design and implementation of adaptation
actions. It contains specific proposals pertaining to: national planning for
adaptation; the enhancement of knowledge sharing; the streamlining and scaling

adaptation. [The
