Sendai Framework for DRR 2015-2030
UNITAR’s Training Offers on Disaster Risk Reduction
The year 2015 is an exciting year for the international community, as many global agreements are being discussed that will shape peace and development efforts for the years to come. The first global milestone of this post-2015 era is the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, which has been adopted by 187 UN Member States on 18 March in Sendai, Japan. The Framework is the result of a long process of consultation with a wide variety of stakeholders, and builds on 10 years of work in implementing its predecessor, the Hyogo Framework for Action.
UNITAR has supported the preparations for the World Conference on DRR in Sendai by developing an online tutorial and is now partnering with specialized UN agencies and other organizations to offer training packages in support of countries and local actors who are called to implement the newly adopted Framework.
