  • Investing in governance should be seen as a new opportunity, which is highlighted as one of the four priority areas in the Sendai Framework. This can help to address policy gaps, reduce exposure and vulnerability and in so doing, minimize the risk of economic, social and human failures and the costly losses for countries and humanity that these entail.

Concept note - Topic 2

 
 
 
 
  • 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, one of them being strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk. It also emphasizes the need for strengthening disaster risk governance at the local level for prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery and rehabilitation. Disaster risk management at the local level has to be a key element in any viable national DRR strategy.
