UN Scientific and Technological Community Major Group and International Science Council (ISC)- Report for the Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
This report from the International Science Council (ISC) is a contribution on behalf of the Scientific and Technological Community Major Group to the Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework led by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR). It is the work of an interdisciplinary expert group in an array of risks as well as governance, physical and social sciences, policy and finance.
The report identifies achievements in disaster risk reduction (DRR) since 2015 under the Sendai Framework, but also highlights key implementation gaps. The report provides guidance to policymakers, funders, researchers, international organizations and other stakeholders who shape the way we assess, value, manage and monitor risks.
