IOM and the Sendai Framework: A global review of IOM’s contributions to strengthening disaster resilience
This report examines the progress made in 2018 for the implementation of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) Strategic Work Plan on Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience 2017–2020, adopted three years ago. The findings presented are grounded in data collected from 65 IOM country offices worldwide.
The broad spectrum of hazards, with implications for displacement risk, highlights the importance of managing multi-hazard risks across varying scales and time frames in sudden- and slow-onset contexts. This report also stresses the centrality of all-of-society and all-of-State engagement to effectively tackle the root causes of risk, instead of only managing their consequences.
In conclusion, the scale, complexity, and duration of disasters are expected to increase as hazards become more frequent and intense, and vulnerability more acute due to processes, such as environmental change, unregulated urbanization, demographic change, inequality, and weak governance systems. Such contexts present unique sets of challenges that require new and tailored approaches, better data and analysis, and expanded collaboration with non-traditional Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) actors.
