Sendai FrameworkWords Into Action

Implementation guide for business, professional associations & private sector financial institutions

This guide will focus on making the case for incorporating disaster risk reduction in the core work of business. This will be done through self-diagnosis checklists, examples and experiences and good practices covering risk-sensitive corporate decision-making, resilient investment, adoption of voluntary global standards and tools, and contribution to inclusive dialogue with national and local governments.
