Showcase your commitments towards implementing the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction on UNDRR Voluntary Commitments platform.
The platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR while identifying crossovers with others in the field and potential partners with whom to collaborate to maximise impact. Stakeholders can get their achievements highlighted too. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit and follow-up their commitments.
The 2015 World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (WCDRR), conducted in Sendai, Japan, identified the State as having the primary responsibility but also underlined the shared responsibility of stakeholders for DRR. As a result, Member States called for specific and time-bound voluntary commitments by stakeholders at local, national, regional and global levels in line with DRR strategies and plans to support the implementation of the Sendai Framework.
Through the voluntary commitments platform, UNDRR can in turn monitor and take stock of the work done to increase the effectiveness of stakeholders’ shared responsibility towards DRR.

2015 Voluntary Commitments
A number of commitments were made before and during the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (WCDRR) in 2015. Below, you can find these previously announced commitments for reference. Since then, significant progress has been made with their initiatives. Thus, in addition to new commitments, the Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments online platform also accepts the registry of previously announced commitments.
- National governments are kindly requested to submit their commitments to the Sendai Framework Monitoring Tool
- Stakeholders working on DRR can submit their commitments to the Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments online platform
Government announcements and special initiatives include both national and local governments, and parliamentarians, and complement the official government statements made at the Open-ended Intergovernmental Preparatory Committee meetings and the WCDRR.

Voluntary commitments from other stakeholders can be made by all other actors such as private sector, NGOs, local communities, science organizations, etc.
