The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments
Member States at the United Nations General Assembly called for specific and time-bound voluntary commitments by stakeholders at local, national, regional and global levels in line with DRR strategies and plans to support the implementation of the Sendai Framework, recognizing that an all-of-society approach is critical to reducing risk of and building resilience to disasters. The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform was launched in 2018 and it captures partner contributions towards the Sendai Framework implementation, fulfilling the mandate given by the General Assembly. It provides a space to hear the voices of all relevant actors valuing their expertise and contributions.
The SFVC online platform
The platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their efforts while also sharing good practices and exploring synergies to maximize impact towards disaster resilience. Stakeholders working on DRR, including private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc., can submit and update their commitments. Stakeholders can show their contribution to the Sendai Framework and may also get their achievements highlighted through the platform. In turn, UNDRR can monitor and take stock of stakeholder contributions while also fostering collaboration to further advance the implementation of the Sendai Framework.
The SFVC Synthesis and Analysis Report provides a thorough analysis of stakeholders’ contributions towards the Sendai Framework that have been published on the online platform. A report is developed every three years in conjunction with the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction. Since 2018, the following reports have been published:
