Abstract [en]

Global governance implies cooperative measures designated for solving problems on global scale, in which diverse actors interact through different channels and networks establishing steering mechanisms and rule systems. While each state has the primary responsibility for systematically implementing measures to reduce vulnerability and increase resilience, there are other actors that have an influence (to different degrees) on the decision-making process, not least at the global level. Consequently, we are in the presence of an emergent global governance system in disaster risk reduction (DRR)-quite young in comparison to other policy fields-characterized by non-hierarchical and networked relations among different actors in different arenas, and even across and within their boundaries. Global networks have led to significant achievements in DRR but they have also presented obstacles and challenges, often endogenous to the system's complexity. It is necessary therefore to understand this complexity in order to enhance the benefits that global governance provides to DRR, seeking at the same time to diminish its constraints. Thus, the aim of this paper is to gain a better understanding of global networks in DRR within a nascent global governance system. The study of the International Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) and related documents showed that there are instruments and shared practices, a common language, and global networks (as well as regional and national) of actors and institutions engaged in DRR. Even though HFA is normative and non-binding, it contains the core principles for integrative disaster risk management and can be seen as the manifestation of commitment to systematically incorporating DRR into policies and programs that lead to sustainable development and poverty reduction. Hence, the post- 2015 framework for DRR offers the opportunity to strengthen and improve this system, especially with regard to coordination and implementation.
