The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) has been appointed by the Government
to coordinate, through a national platform, the work to prevent and mitigate the consequences
of natural hazards and disasters. This is accomplished in cooperation with
other relevant authorities and organisations. The work of the platform aims to fulfil
Sweden’s commitments to the Hyogo Declaration and the Hyogo Framework for Action
2005–2015: Building the Resilience of Nations and Communities to Disasters (HFA).
