The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction stresses the need for better governance of risk, in which the state has the primary role in reducing disaster risk. Building resilience to disasters also brings together the responsibilities of many sectors, stakeholders, and levels of governance. By ensuring effective coordination of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) at national level, national platforms play an instrumental role in ensuring an all-of-government and all-of-society approach to reducing risk and building resilience. These efforts are intimately tied to the coordination efforts at local level (ex. local platforms), as well as supranational level (ex. European Forum for DRR).
Across the Europe region, composed of 55 UN Member Countries, 37 national platforms for DRR are in place. This report brings together country fact sheets for all 37 national platforms reported thus far by National Sendai Focal Point. This living document offers an overview of the main dimensions of these coordination mechanisms, allowing for an exchange of good practices, the development of synergies and the possibility for stronger engagement across countries of the Europe/Central Asia region.
