Roundtable discussion with Parliamentarians on the Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework
This is the outcome report of the Roundtable discussion with Parliamentarians on the Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework. The virtual roundtable discussion with parliamentarians, organized by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and supported by the Climate Vulnerable Forum Global Parliamentary Group and GLOBE International, brought together parliamentarians from Bangladesh, Canada, Ghana, Mauritius, Mexico, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago and United Kingdom to inform the midterm review of the Sendai Framework 2015-2030 (MTR SF).
The roundtable discussion is one in a series of consultations for the MTR SF, which will be concluded at the high-level meeting of the General Assembly in New York from 18-19 May 2023 with the adoption of a concise action-oriented political declaration. The roundtable provided parliamentarians with the opportunity to provide feedback on how they have leveraged the Sendai Framework over the last seven years to shape their national policies, legislation and budgetary processes to substantially reduce 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.
