UNDP Submission to the Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
The UN System is a key stakeholder to be consulted as part of the MTR. It is against this backdrop that UNDP’s Disaster Risk Reduction and Recovery for Building Resilience Team (DRT) and the SDG Integration Team (SDGIT) organized an internal Sparkblue consultation to seek the inputs of UNDP staff on the MTR. The consultation ran from 28 June – 25 July 2022 and featured three global webinars to kick-start reflections on the MTR review questions; four discussion rooms that focused on specific themes of interest; and three coffee chat events with the online moderators to summarize the main messages from the responses received.
The consultation was designed for UNDP experts and practitioners representing different UNDP communities of practice working at global, regional and country level (e.g. climate change, disaster risk reduction, conflict prevention, governance, PVE, health, environment, poverty, finance). The consultation covered four broad themes, namely (i) retrospective review of experiences with implementing the Sendai Framework to date; (ii) reflections on UNDP’s role in supporting the Sendai Framework; (iii) changing risk and development context; and (iv) prospective review of recommendations for the remaining period of the Sendai Framework and beyond 2030.
The UNDP findings and recommendations will feed into the MTR process on issues related to international or national risk governance, risk analysis and assessment, coherence across sectors and agendas, partnerships and collaboration, and priority actions and critical achievements for the period 2023-2030 to address the systemic nature of risk.
