Purpose and objectives

The past Global Summits have continued to maintain an institutional structure advocating importance of engagement in collaborative research activities to accomplish disaster risk reduction and resilience at a global level. The Sendai Framework Agenda for 2030 calls to increase awareness on disaster risk reduction and resilience and implement policies to prevent new risks. What could GADRI do to further promote the 2030 agenda of the Sendai Framework? GADRI are committed to take a coherent and a global approach to disaster risk reduction and resilience through its network of disaster research institutes.

The Fourth Global Summit under the theme of "Increasing the effectiveness and relevance of our institutes" will explore:

  • GADRI Contributions to the 2016 Science & Technology Roadmap; and how best could GADRI promote SFDRR 2030 agenda?
  • SDGs and Climate change and adaptation - what engagement mechanisms and research linkages are needed to influence research directions among policy makers, governments, localities, media, etc.?
  • The Tokyo Statement 2017 and the SFDRR Agenda 2030 - Nation's Synthesis: Online Synthesis System and Pre-synthesis
  • Research Funding - Where are the funding for disaster risk reduction activities coming from and are they invested to right causes and areas that are most needed?
