Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction: 2015-2030
The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction: 2015-2030 was adopted on March 18 at the 3rd UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction.
 
The United Nations General Assembly Resolution adopted in 2013 (68/211) on International Strategy for Disaster Reduction stated that the World Conference would result in a concise, focused, forward-looking, and action-oriented outcome document and will have the following objectives:
  • To complete assessment and review of the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action;
  • To consider the experience gained through the regional and national strategies/institutions and plans for disaster risk reduction and their recommendations as well as relevant regional agreements within the implementation of the Hyogo Framework of Action;
  • To adopt a post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction;
  • To identify modalities of cooperation based on commitments to implement a post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction;
  • To determine modalities to periodically review the implementation of a post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction.
 
The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 outlines seven clear targets and four priorities for action to prevent new and reduce existing disaster risks: (i) Understanding disaster risk; (ii) Strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk; (iii) Investing in disaster reduction for resilience and; (iv) Enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response, and to “Build Back Better” in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction. It aims to achieve the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries over the next 15 years.
