The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 ushered in a paradigm shift from managing disasters to managing disaster risk, and solidified the role of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in the fulfillment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

 

Achieving the goals of risk prevention, risk reduction, and resilience-building requires a strategic approach that is led by the national government but includes all stakeholders. To reflect the urgency of developing these plans, Target ‘E’ of the Sendai Framework sets a deadline of 2020 for countries to have their national and local disaster risk reduction strategies.

The consultative workshop, being organized following the ISDR-Asia Partnership (IAP) Forum, will focus on building a common understanding of how countries and sub-national governments can develop DRR strategies that enable them to achieve the goals of the Sendai Framework. ADRRN will deliver the opening remarks to provide an overview of  inclusive DRR strategies from the civil society perspective.
