United Nations Integrated Strategy for the Sahel
UNISS tackles the structural problems of the Sahel that make the region vulnerable to conflicts, such as poverty, underdevelopment and governance challenges.
UNISS has an overall mission to achieve the specific goals of the Strategy, the UNSP for the Sahel and Agenda 2030, collectively as one UN.
This is being done through a strong coordination mechanism led by the UNISS Implementation Support Unit together with all pillar groups including UNOWAS in collaboration with over 20 Agencies, Funds and Programmes with strong emphasis on tackling issues around humanitarian-development-peace ensuring that development support efficiently reaches out to the populations in need across the region
The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.
