UNDRR Stakeholder Engagement Mechanism (SEM) Reflections on the Sendai Framework Midterm Review

The Sendai Framework provides for an all-of-society and all-of-state engagement in preventing and reducing disaster risks posed by both natural and man-made hazards and related environmental, technological and biological hazards and risks. The Mid-Term Review marks the midpoint in the implementation cycle of the Sendai Framework and its scope includes, inter alia, a retrospective review of progress achieved thus far, a prospective view on what needs to be done in the future to address current and emerging issues, creating coherence with the reviews or  other sustainable development frameworks
