Sendai five years on: Reflections on the role of international law in the creation and reduction of disaster risk

Source(s):  Springer

This article offers a critical examination of theposition of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 within international law. It is argued that any interrogation into the relationship between international law and disaster risk reduction (DRR) must begin not with existing DRR laws and policies, but rather with an enquiry into the nature of disaster risk and the role of international law in its creation and reduction. It is demonstrated how, while areas such as international humanrights law can be utilized to enforce obligations in supportof DRR, other areas—in particular, international investment law—actively work to undermine DRR efforts.
