Where do we stand

The GP2022 represents an important opportunity to take stock of progress and challenges in reducing disaster risk, and to identify good practices to accelerate the implementation of the Sendai Framework at local, national, regional and global level. Furthermore, taking place at half-way of the agreed timeline to reach the Sendai Framework targets in 2030, the GP2022 will serve as a milestone for governments, stakeholders, and the UN system to reconfirm and advance their commitments in disaster risk reduction

Session guiding questions

Member States and representatives of stakeholder groups, such as the United Nations, international or regional organizations, are invited to consider the following questions when preparing their statements: 

  • Where does your country/organization stand? Are you on track to reach the expected outcomes, goals, and targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction by 2030? Which are the key areas of progress and success, and which are the areas where concerted attention is needed? 
  • What good practices exist? In which areas is the implementation of national and local strategies and plans for disaster risk reduction yielding results? Are you achieving synergies with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other global policy processes, ensuring that no one is left behind? 
  • How do we work together? How can we strengthen existing, and forge new networks and partnerships on disaster risk reduction? 
  • How do we accelerate progress? What are the foremost priorities for action towards 2030? Are there any specific commitments or announcements your country/organization would like to make?
