Our next issue of HazNet will focus on the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction was developed to guide efforts on disaster risk reduction in the period between 2015 and 2030. We are half-way through the framework. Are we making enough progress to “to prevent and reduce disaster risk through the implementation of integrated and inclusive economic, structural, legal, social, health, cultural, educational, environmental, technological, political, and institutional measures that prevent and reduce hazard exposure and vulnerability to disaster, increase preparedness for response and recovery and thus strengthen resilience“?

We welcome articles that focus on the concept of “shared responsibility” and that broadly address the four priorities identified in the framework:

  1. Understanding disaster risk
  2. Strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk
  3. Investing in disaster risk reduction for resilience
  4. Enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response and to “Build Back Better” in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction

We hope you will join us in telling Canada’s evolving story of risk and resilience.
