Report of the Secretary-General on the Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (2018)
The present report provides an overview of progress in the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, as requested by the General Assembly in its resolution 72/218. In accordance with Assemble resolution 71/227, the report also includes a section on an effective global response to address the impacts of the El Nino phenomenon.
More can be done to leverage the dividends of disaster risk reduction to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Concerted efforts are needed to support the integration of disaster risk reduction strategies with sustainable development and climate change adaptation strategies. To turn strategies into action, tailored disaster risk reduction financing instruments and greater risk-informed investments by the public and private sectors are needed.
