What is the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction?

Agreed at the Third United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction from 14 to 18 March 2015 in Sendai, Japan, the Sendai Framework provides the framework for an all-of-society and all-of-State institutions engagement in preventing and reducing disaster risks posed by both natural and man-made hazards and related environmental, technological and biological hazards and risks.


2023 marks the midpoint in implementing the Sendai Framework, the 2030 Agenda and other 2015 agreements. The Midterm Review will conclude in 2023, with countries and stakeholders invited to conduct consultations and provide input through 2022.
