It is also based on a Plenary Session (Monday, 25 August 2014) which was particularly dedicated to outcomes of international conferences on DRR which have taken place in the first half of 2014, on a Special Session (Monday 25 August 2014) on the specific needs of the UNISDR Platforms and Networks, and finally on a specific Post-Conference Expert Workshop with some 30 international experts on 29 August 2014, held also in Davos, Switzerland.
