Key objectives of their event are as follows:

  • To identify the key knowledge gaps and opportunities to strengthen the contributions of a comprehensive, interdisciplinary science base to delivering the Sendai Framework including through the operationalization of the Global Science and Technology Road Map;
  • To commit collectively to enhanced collaboration for an integrated science approach to DRR, CCA and sustainable development;
  • To fill the current gap in knowledge and application of new technologies for disaster risk reduction and enhanced resilience.

The priority audiences for the conference are:

  1. Policy-makers dealing with the implementation of the Sendai Framework nationally;
  2. Scientists and technology experts actively working in building the knowledge and its use in decision-making and action around the Sendai objectives;
  3. Other stakeholders from civil society, business, media working on supporting evidence-based DRR.
