Progress toward implementing the Sendai Framework, the Paris Agreement, and the Sustainable Development Goals: Policy from Aotearoa New Zealand

Source(s):  Springer

In 2015, Aotearoa/New Zealand became a signatory to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 (Sendai Framework), the Paris Climate Change Agreement (Paris Agreement), and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This article reviews how Aotearoa/New Zealand is taking steps to improve consistency of planning across the legislative environment, thereby implementing its commitments to the Sendai Framework, the SDGs, and the Paris Agreement.

It provides an overview of the national governance arrangements, with a focus on the key legislative tools; identifies how key terms are defined nationally; and provides an overview of the governance arrangements that contribute to the country’s international obligations. Four recommended actions are provided:

  1. Take into account these international agreements during the development and implementation of all legislation;
  2. Build awareness, capability, and capacity within central, regional, and local governments to support implementation;
  3. Actively evaluate the progress of implementing initiatives designed to reduce vulnerability and strengthen resilience; and
  4. Ensure that more weight and value are given to indigenous planning documents.
