Strategic Approach to Capacity Development for Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction

Published by: UNDRR, 2019

The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (Sendai Framework) recognises the State’s primary role in facilitating the achievement of its disaster risk reduction (DRR) goal and priorities and highlights the criticality of sharing these responsibilities with other stakeholders and realizing an all-of-society approach.

The Strategic Approach herein seeks to establish among all stakeholders a common understanding of capacity development (CD) within the DRR context. By characterising outstanding CD needs in light of common obstacles and constraints, presenting key principles, elements, and actions that together help guide planning discussions, providing targets and ideals, and normalising practice across sectors, improvement of practical standards will occur.
