DRI Consults on UNISDR Draft of Global Capacity Development Strategy to Support Sendai Framework
On March 14-15 in Geneva, Switzerland, DRI International participated in the global expert consultation on the zero draft of the Global Capacity Development Strategy to Support Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. This meeting was part of DRI’s work with the United Nations Office of Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR).
“This document will serve as an effective guideline for government agencies charged with developing or coordinating capacity to implement national strategies for preparedness and disaster risk reduction,” said DRI President and CEO Chloe Demrovsky. “We at DRI were pleased to represent the needs and concerns of the private sector as a function of our role with the ARISE Private Sector Initiative of UNISDR and would be happy to provide any additional support to the member states as they implement their strategies.”
Once fully formulated, the Global Capacity Development Strategy will allow partners to work together to ensure capacity development programs lead to sustainable capacities in the Member States, reducing disaster losses and strengthening resilience.
Among the goals of the global expert consultation:
The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 aims to achieve the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries over the next 15 years.
