Words into Action guidelines: Enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response

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

The Words into Action (WiA) guidelines series aims to ensure worldwide access to expertise, communities of practice and networks of DRR practitioners. The guidelines offer specific advice on the steps suggested to implement a feasible and people-centered approach in accordance with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. 

This Words into Action guideline aims at promoting smooth operations between existing guidance and initiatives to provide direction for risk-informed disaster preparedness for response, which is required to achieve the goal of the Sendai Framework.

It targets actors working to strengthen risk-informed disaster preparedness within and across sectors and at all administrative levels in a country.

This guideline:

  • highlights the key principles and required actions outlined in the Sendai Framework to enhance disaster preparedness for effective response in action;
  • points to existing resources that provide more detailed explanations and guidance by theme or stakeholder, and
  • illustrates implementation with examples.
