5 March 2020

As we enter the new decade, it is becoming abundantly clear that greater commitment and accelerated action is urgently needed to help meet their commitments to combat climate change and reduce disaster risk. A transformation of this magnitude calls for new ways of thinking and operating, underscoring the need to promote innovation as a critical factor in the achievement of the 2030 Agenda, including the Sendai Framework and the Sustainable Development Goals.
