Sendai FrameworkWords Into Action

Implementation guide on standards

This guide will encourage the revision of existing - or the development of new - building codes, standards, rehabilitation and reconstruction practices at the national or local levels, as appropriate. It will provide examples of standard development for disaster risk reduction and elaborate on key elements that need to be considered for specific disaster risk reduction areas or themes where actual standards are being considered.
