Policy brief: Achieving risk reduction across Sendai, Paris and the SDGs

Source(s):  International Science Council (ISC)

The purpose of this document is to set out key policy messages based on the synergies and coherence between the major global agreements of Sendai, Paris and the SDGs – with specific reference to systemic and cascading risks. This focus is because of the extreme, widespread and long-lasting potential impacts of such events. These impacts could have long-lasting negative effects on the livelihoods and well-being of people, economies and countries, undermining development and the achievement of the SDGs. 

This policy brief provides five policy recommendations for the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction 2019, focusing on the following messages:

  1. Authorities and practitioners must identify synergies and conflicts between policy areas to maximise co-benefits
  2. Risk interdependencies require in-depth interdisciplinary analysis
  3. Resilience is needed across sectors and scales, and goes hand in hand with risk reduction
  4. Integrated reporting across agreements could provide substantial efficiencies
  5. Authorities and practitioners must identify issues for national risk registers
