National focal points for disaster risk reduction, national platforms for disaster risk reduction, local platforms for disaster risk reduction

This document will provide guidance on National Focal Points for the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and on the establishment or strengthening of National and Local Platforms for DRR. It also describes the link between Global, National, Regional, and Local Platforms for DRR.

Concept note

  • 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.
