Implementation guide on national and local platforms for DRR

This guide will focus on both the development and further strengthening of national and local platforms for disaster risk reduction, based on ongoing experiences and good practices by countries and local authorities worldwide. The guide will also outline the roles and activities set out in the Sendai Framework for national and local platforms, and provide experiences and good practices by similar platforms and coordinating bodies. The supplement on private sector will emphasize the do’s and dont’s of private sector involvement in national and local platforms for disaster risk reduction, with a checklist based on lessons learned.

  • Concept note - Topic 1

    National platforms have contributed to a coordinated approach in addressing disaster risks. Their numbers increased during the decade following the adoption of the Hyogo Framework for Action in 2005, and a number of good practices have been shared. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction has built on these experiences and specified a number of tasks that national platforms need to perform.

  • Concept note: supplement on the private sector - Topic 2

    The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction recommends that national and local governments work closely with the private sector across its four Priorities for Action. National and local governments may also benefit greatly from industry expertise, for example in insurance and risk-sharing, as well as from the lessons of the implementation of voluntary standards and measures such as resilient building codes and tourism, and business continuity.
