    Concept note

    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.
