This note provides measures and opportunities to promote coherence and mutual reinforcement of disaster risk reduction in international agreements and their implementation as foreseen by the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
The Framework specifically recognizes the unique opportunity to enhance coherence across policies, institutions, goals, indicators and measurement systems for implementation and seeks to ensure credible links, as appropriate, between these processes. The Sendai Framework further calls for coherence in the development, strengthening and implementation of relevant policies, plans, practices and mechanisms. While governments and partners are already working towards implementation of the Sendai Framework nationally and subnationally, ongoing considerations in other international agendas present immediate opportunities implement the Sendai Framework in the formulation of international mechanisms.
The note sees opportunities in i) establishing political recognition for coherence and mutual reinforcement in international agreements, ii) linking mechanisms for monitoring and reporting of linked goals and indicators, and iii) promoting cooperation in implementation.
