Mauritius Declaration on the Implementation of the Sendai Framework in Africa

This is the declaration of the Ministers and Heads of Delegations responsible for Disaster Risk Reduction in Africa present at the Fifth High-level Meeting on Disaster Risk Reduction in Mauritius on 25 November 2016. Recognising the increasing impact of disasters and their complexity in Africa, the signatories endorse the ‘Programme of Action for the Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030’ in Africa.

They further commit to risk-informed development by preventing new and reducing existing disaster risk, through the implementation of integrated and inclusive measures that prevent and reduce hazard exposure and vulnerability to disasters and increase preparedness for response, recovery and reconstruction thereby strengthening resilience.

Calling for a significant increase in the allocation of annual national budget for disaster risk reduction, the Declaration promotes integrated approaches for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation and mitigation, including through facilitating access to climate financing mechanisms and adopting ecosystem-based approaches.
