The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 is the global roadmap for reducing human and economic loss as a direct result of disasters.
The Sendai Framework advocates for ‘the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries.’ It recognises that the State has the primary role to reduce disaster risk but that responsibility should be shared with other stakeholders including local government and the private sector.
The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR, formerly UNISDR) is tasked to support the implementation, follow-up and review of the Sendai Framework.
