Video New Year´s Message 2014-2015 from UNDRR - Americas

As the year comes to an end, it is time to not only highlight this year´s achievements, but to assess the challenges, and draw a strategic course toward a historical 2015; where key events such as the United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction* will contribute to a new global framework for community resilience to be widely recognized as a priority for sustainable development, for which new objectives will be agreed in 2015, as will a global agreement regarding climate change.

We know that the future brings new challenges, and thus we would like to take advantage of this moment to strengthen our ties, sincerely thank you for your support, and recognize your invaluable collaboration to our firm commitment to ensure that every person, every community and every state of the Americas becomes more resilient.

On behalf of the Regional Office for the Americas, United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, we wish you peace, happiness and prosperity.
