This UNISDR position paper reviews the 'Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development' outcome document from the disaster risk reduction perspective. It notes that the outcome document, a culmination of efforts over the last three years to develop a successor to the Millennium Declaration (including the Millennium Development Goals), highlights the need for disaster risk reduction across a number of sectors in line with the understanding that disaster risk reduction is cross-cutting and requires a multi-sectoral approach. It further notes that the ongoing development of indicators to monitor the SDGs and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction will support coherence and align implementation, and that 'Transforming Our World' also echoes Sendai Framework's call for building disaster risk reduction partnerships across sectors and stakeholders to meet the post-2015 international agreements.
The paper concludes that the key will be developing mutual reinforcement and coherence between Sendai Framework and the relevant global targets in the Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
