Sendai statement to promote disability-inclusive disaster risk reduction for resilient, inclusive and equitable societies in Asia and the Pacific

This statement is an outcome of the Asia Pacific Meeting on Disability-inclusive Disaster Risk reduction: Changing Mindsets through Knowledge, held in Sendai, Japan, on 22 and 23 April 2014. It solidifies the voice from 130 experts on disaster risk reduction and disability policy, as well as representatives of organizations of persons with disabilities from more than 15 countries.

Given the higher effect of disasters on persons with disabilities, the statement requests the explicit and systematic inclusion of disability dimensions into the post-2015 global disaster risk reduction framework, so that the resilience and chances of survival of all persons in the community are increased. The statement includes 14 specific actions to be taken by Governments, UN entities and development cooperation agencies, and 4 strategic action points for taking forward disability inclusion into the post-2015 disaster risk reduction framework.
