African Union Commission: Programme of action for the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 in Africa (in line with the Regional DRR Strategy)

This Plan of Action (POA) includes the priorities and actions to be undertaken by all stakeholders involved in disaster risk management (DRM) in Africa to implement the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) on the continent. It builds on the extended POA, the SFDRR and relevant international frameworks and processes to further strengthen DRM in Africa and its integration in policies of the African Union Commission (AUC), Regional Economic Communities (RECs) and member states to strengthen resilience to disaster risks at the continental, regional, national and sub-national levels.

The POA applies to the AUC, RECs, Regional Implementation Centers (RICs) and national ministries, agencies and departments responsible for DRM, as well as their sub-national structures. It provides elements of and guidance for national DRR programmes of countries which are aligned with and complement the POA. Non government organizations, partners and stakeholders, including the private sector, are encouraged to align their DRM strategies and programmes to the POA for coherence of DRM in Africa. In terms of threats and stresses, the POA covers the risk of small and large-scale, frequent and infrequent and quick or slow-onset disasters caused by natural, including environmental, hazards and technological hazards and risks.
