World Health Organization (WHO): The Midterm Review of the Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030
The WHO MTR of the implementation of the Sendai Framework details the global, regional, and country activities in support of the Sendai goals, noting the challenges associated with the risk environment, technical issues and available resources, e.g. funding, human resources and the many challenges the health workforce faces. Opportunities are then discussed in the context of the WHO Programme, technical issues and available resources. Recommendations are provided for achieving the four Sendai Framework Priorities. This report follows the UNDRR-recommended format for reporting the MTR SF and includes its methodology and process, a retrospective review, contextual shifts reflecting new and emerging challenges, and a prospective review and recommendations and primarily draws upon information from WHO documents including policies, guidance and reports from the WHO General Program of Work and the UN Plan of Action for DRR. It has received further inputs from WHO offices following review and consultation.
