This brief provides policy recmmendations to assess country-level science and technology capacities for implementing the Sendai Framework. Science and technology play an important and crucial role in disaster risk reduction (DRR) in all countries. Through scientific research progress, disaster risk reduction has benefitted, especially in terms of risk assessment and early warning systems that identify risk at various spatial and temporal scales. Science and technology have also developed construction techniques that strengthen the resilience of buildings and infrastructures to different types of hazards, among many other examples.

Recommendations include:

  • Establish national science, technology and academia advisory groups
  • Undertake periodic reviews of the country’s science and technology
  • Develop a national science and technology plan and highlight priority actions
  • Undertake periodic monitoring
  • Organize national science conference
