This document seeks to distil good practices from the findings and recommendations identified in The Midterm Review of the Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (MTR SF)3, emerging from over seventy Voluntary National Reports (VNRs) submitted by Member States following national consultations and reviews, as well as formal submissions of non-State stakeholders, meetings, interviews with experts and practitioners, policy documents, strategic and guidance documents, and thematic studies. Bringing this global expertise to scale will be critical to accelerate progress towards accelerating implementation of the Sendai Framework and thus risk-informed sustainable development.
The document highlights good practices in disaster risk reduction (DRR) that correspond to the Sendai Framework's four priority areas. While the good practices included provide valuable insights on the way forward, in that they are drawn from the submissions of Member States and stakeholders to the MTR SF, they should not be treated as exhaustive.
As such, this document must be read in conjunction with the report of the Main findings and recommendations of the midterm review of the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (A/77/640) and the Report of the midterm review of the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. It is recommended that these examples be treated as points of departure for further discussion and scale-up at regional and global levels.
