Report of the Secretary-General

Día Internacional para la Reducción de Desastres



By: UNISDR

Summary

The present report provides an overview of progress in the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030, as requested by the General Assembly in its resolution 72/218. In accordance with Assembly resolution 71/227, the report also includes a section on an effective global response to address the impacts of the El Niño phenomenon. Since 2015, a global policy architecture has been developed with the aim of guiding the integration of disaster risk reduction, sustainable development and climate change adaptation. Many countries have or are in the process of developing national and local disaster risk reduction strategies towards global target (e) of the Sendai Framework, to substantially increase the number of countries with national and local disaster risk reduction strategies in place by 2020.

More can be done to leverage the dividends of disaster risk reduction to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Concerted efforts are needed to support the integration of disaster risk reduction strategies with sustainable development and climate change adaptation strategies. To turn strategies into action, tailored disaster risk reduction financing instruments and greater risk-informed investments by the public and private sectors are needed.

Entities across the United Nations system have integrated disaster risk reduction into their strategic frameworks and are coming together to offer a comprehensive package of support to Member States in line with the United Nations Plan of Action on Disaster Risk Reduction for Resilience: Towards a Risk-informed and Integrated Approach to Sustainable Development
