The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction as a tool for conflict prevention
Recognizing that disaster risk and conflict are a result of similar underlying causes and multiple vulnerabilities, this paper builds on existing research on the conflict-disaster risk nexus. The report examines the prevention-focused agenda being developed at the UN that builds on the recommendations of the High-Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations (HIPPO) and the Review of the United Nations Peacebuilding Architecture (AGE) report as well as the disaster risk reduction agenda that builds on the Sendai Framework. Finally, this paper identifies key parallels between these two agendas, as well as some challenges for synergies.
This study indicates that the Sendai Framework could be useful for prevention and contribute to the sustaining peace goals outlined in the UNSC resolution 2282 and UNGA resolution 70/626 on "sustaining peace."
