From Intent to Action: Commitments of AMCDRR 2016

Source(s):  All India Disaster Mitigation Institute (AIDMI)

This issue of focuses on the 2016 Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (AMCDRR) which has provided a clear path for building resilience at the global, regional and local levels. It was the first important conference in India to be held after the adoption of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) in 2015. The conference led to the finalization of the 'New Delhi Declaration' and the 'Asian Regional Plan (ARP) for Implementation of the Sendai Framework'. While the 'New Delhi Declaration' is a political statement that spells out the commitment of the participating governments to reduce and manage risk in their respective countries, the ARP provides a roadmap of converting these commitments to results.

This issue of discusses the possible ways, strategies and approaches that can help in fulfilling these commitments over the 15-year horizon of SFDRR. This issue includes the following stories: 

  • A Ten-Point Agenda for Disaster Risk Reduction;
  • AIDMI at AMCDRR 2016;
  • Gender Equality and Local Ownership in AMCDRR;
  • Celebration of International Day for Disaster Reduction in Assam;
