Bi-ennial report on Programme of Action for implementation of Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in Africa 2015-2018, an addendum to the Africa Biennial Report on the implementation of Africa Regional Strategy and SFDRR
The aim of this biennial report is to report on the implementation of the seven global targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) and the additional five Africa-specific DRR targets, as outlined in the Programme of Action (PoA), within the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) region. This is Africa’s first biennial report since the adoption of the Sendai Framework and the PoA.
Since the objective of the study was to provide a report of Member States’ and the ECCAS’ progress against the targets of the SFDRR and the Africa PoA’s additional five targets, the reporting had to also consider the four Priority Areas of the SFDRR as they relate to the various targets. This report is meant to cover all of the ECCAS Member States.
The data collected on PoA additional targets shows that six Member States (Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, DRC and Equatorial Guinea) have made progress against the additional Africa DRR targets. Angola and Gabon reported no additional progress over the two periods. Rwanda made the highest overall achievement of the targets and Chad achieved the highest increase towards the targets. Congo and, Sao Tome and Principe reported a clear regression in the implementation of the PoA.
