History

The Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK) was established on 1 May 2004 within the remit of the Federal Ministry of the Interior as a central organisational element working to ensure the safety of the population, combining and providing all relevant tasks and information in a single place.

Following the adoption of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015 – 2030) the German Federal Government set up a Coordinating Office for the implementation of the Sendai Framework as a National Focal Point at the BBK. In course of the establishment of the Office of the National Focal Point the German National Platform was restructured.
 

Structure

The National Focal Point for the Sendai Framework is embedded in an Inter-Ministerial Working Group for the Sendai Framework Process in Germany. This Inter-Ministerial Working Group is currently forming the National Platform and consists of the Federal Foreign Office (AA), the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community (BMI) and the Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) as well as the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the German Red Cross (GRC). Through this Inter-Ministerial Working Group, the National Focal Point gains the legitimacy to act on behalf of the German Federal Government.
