Briefing note on the 21st Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP21) in Paris

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)

This UNISDR briefing note reaffirms its intention of promoting coherence and mutual reinforcement of disaster risk reduction in the climate change agenda in the context of COP21 and expected outcome of a new climate agreement to succeed the Kyoto Protocol.

The note includes specific messages for COP21 on disaster risk reduction to build climate resilience on building resilience through risk-sensitive planning and implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, on the need for a more integrated approach to adaptation, sustainable development, environmental management and DRR, and on the need to improve data on disaster losses by building on, expanding, and strengthening existing national disaster loss databases and risk analysis.

The note emphasises that the Sendai Framework specifically addresses climate change and climate action, providing measures, guiding principles and means of implementation, and that it is - with no other international operational goal on adaptation in place - the most focused and robust instrument currently available to address resilience.
