Hot on the heels of COP27, the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction has brought together ten of Africa’s most disaster-prone nations who want to accelerate climate action through better management of disaster and climate risks.
UNDRR and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) organized a workshop to enhance coordination mechanism at the regional, sub-regional and national level for early warning systems and transboundary risk management (TRM).
In response to the need to support efficient implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sendai Framework in sub-Saharan Africa, UNDRR is supporting closer engagement of DRR and CCA practices, communities, and institutions.
This project seeks to support DRR stakeholders in Malawi, Zambia, Mozambique and UR Tanzania, to increase the collection and application of disaster loss data and of risk information in the context of EW-EA.
The purpose of this study was to review selected National Adaptation Plans to better understand how disaster risk management is approached in climate change documents, and if systemic risk issues where impacts cascade across sectors are considered.
On 31 March 2021 Member States were invited to reflect 2020 data for Targets A, B, C, D & E in the Sendai Framework Monitor. This milestone was particularly important as countries were invited to reflect Covid 19 data for the first time and to report on
Malawi today became the latest country in Africa to complete training on establishing a national disaster loss data base, considered an essential prerequisite for being able to report on progress on reducing disaster losses and improving disaster risk management.
