The EFDRR Roadmap 2021-2030 identifies four shared priority areas for achieving the priorities of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. The four shared priorities include 16 common action areas for development and investment, along with five enabling approaches. The Roadmap builds on consultation with European and Central Asian countries, the review of progress in implementing the Roadmap 2015-2020, and lessons learned from the Covid-19 pandemic response and recovery. The Roadmap is also informed by the Global Platform 2019 and the guiding principles for the Global Platform 2022.
The European Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction (EFDRR) is a regional platform for Europe and Central Asia comprising 55 countries. These countries have different risk profiles and vary in their approaches to disaster and climate-driven risk reduction implementation, be it policies, strategies, laws, investments, levels of preparedness, collaborative arrangements or partnership modalities. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 provides an opportunity for countries to adopt a concise, focused, forward-looking, inclusive and action-oriented national framework for disaster risk reduction implementation at country level, including modalities of cooperation based on commitments. The Sendai Framework recognizes the role of regional platforms for disaster risk reduction in guiding and supporting national and local actions, including through regional DRR frameworks and strategies.
