UNITED NATIONS, May 13 (Xinhua) -- The president of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), Oh Joon, on Friday emphasized the need to reduce the impact of the El Nino by implementing agreed-upon international frameworks in a coherent manner and increasing resilience-building efforts for the development of holistic disaster risk management worldwide.


In a Presidential Statement following the special meeting on impacts of the 201516 El Nino phenomenon, which was held this past week at UN Headquarters in New York, the ECOSOC president stressed that the immediate priority must be to reduce the impact of the El Nino phenomenon by implementing the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the Paris Agreement on climate change in a coherent and integrated manner.


"The El Nino phenomenon -- with its increasing intensity -- has lasting consequences for development," Oh said, noting that participants in the special meeting had heard the many serious social, economic and environmental impacts of the phenomenon in 2015 and 2016.

The effects of the droughts are still being felt with millions of people on opposite sides of the world experiencing hunger from Ethiopia, in Eastern Africa, to Papua New Guinea, in Oceania.


"The UN system should look to a coherent, coordinated and integrated approach in support and assistance to countries," Oh added.

Oh highlighted that the importance of risk management is also underscored in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which calls for the development and implementation of holistic disaster risk management at all levels.


Risk reduction and resilience-building efforts should also be part of the World Humanitarian Summit considerations and the New Urban Agenda of the UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Development, known as Habitat III, he added.
