Papua New Guinea national disaster risk reduction framework 2017-2030

The Papua New Guinea National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework (NDRRF) 2017-2030 represents international best practices in DRR stemming from the Sendai Framework. It aligns with the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (2017-2030) and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Disaster Risk Reduction Plan. The NDRRF aims to raise understanding and awareness about the goals of the Sendai Framework, which seeks to prevent new and existing disaster risks through a comprehensive approach that reduces vulnerability and increases resilience.

This framework provides a common DRR vision and mutual understanding for different government departments and agencies. The NDRRF also promotes improved communication, coordination and cooperation on DRR.

Through the NDRRF, Papua New Guinea will be implementing the Sendai Framework's four priority areas across all levels of government with the aim to achieve the seven agreed national targets and to measure progress using the target indicators.

Implementation of this policy will contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and improving the Human Development Index. Furthermore, the NDRRF will help fulfil the relevant goals and targets of the Paris Agreement, and it coincides with Papua New Guinea's Climate Change Act.
