We stand at a pivotal moment when it comes to delivering on the policy commitments agreed in 2015 and stipulated in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), Agenda 2030, and the Paris Agreement. Accelerating progress towards global risk reduction requires system-wide transformational change. This includes better leadership and coordination, scaling-up data and analytics to improve the evidence base, fostering best practices and learning across sectors and regions, boosting international cooperation for DRR, and empowering those at the frontline of climate and disaster risk.
This High-Level Dialogue will present a comprehensive stock-take of progress towards global, regional, national and local disaster risk reduction commitments. It will consider the challenges faced and the enabling environment needed to achieve the goals of the Sendai Framework and catalyse synergies across the post-2015 commitments in the count-down towards 2030.
