Breaking down global frameworks for resilience action

While disaster death tolls are slowly declining (on the whole), the numbers of affected people, destroyed livelihoods and economic losses are growing. The changing climate is wreaking havoc in the most vulnerable coastal, island and mountain areas. Our cities are expanding faster than we plan leading to haphazard development. Millions of people continue to live in abject poverty with little access to basic services.

Yet, against this backdrop, the post-2015 frameworks provide an opportunity for joint, cohesive action. Together, the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction, Addis Ababa Accord on financing, Sustainable Development Goals, Paris Agreement on climate change, World Humanitarian Summit and Habitat III on urban issues cover a spectrum of risks. In a significant shift, they even acknowledge and cross-reference each other, looking at underlying vulnerabilities and cross-cutting issues.

This document presents simplified versions of these different frameworks, breaking them down for frontline action.
