The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 (‘the Sendai Framework’) was one of three landmark agreements adopted by the United Nations in 2015. The other two being the Sustainable Development Goals of Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. On 29th July 2020, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction and Head of the UNRRR launched the UNDRR/ISC Sendai Hazard Definition and Classification Review Technical Report.
This set of reports supports the three United Nations landmark agreements, by providing a common set of hazard definitions for monitoring and reviewing implementation which calls for “a data revolution, rigorous accountability mechanisms and renewed global partnerships”.
"The new report is an important stepping stone for the international community to achieve sustainable development within our increasingly complex, interconnected and systemic risk landscape.'
Mami Mizutori, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction and Head of the UNDRR
