This regional analysis shares an overview of the voluntary commitments (VCs) submitted by stakeholders in the Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform covering Asia and Oceania. The document provides an analysis of these VCs against the Asia-Pacific Action Plan for the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
The document presents key figures of VCs in the Asia-Pacific region, which has the greatest number of VCs among the regions and has consistently mobilized stakeholders to publish voluntary commitments on the SFVC online platform. It also investigates the extent to which VCs covering the Asia-Pacific region are supporting the actions of the Asia-Pacific Action Plan 2021-2024, and the extent to which actions are addressed through case studies, and a gap analysis of future priorities.
The document concludes that VCs implemented in the region are aligned with the Asia-Pacific Action Plan and support regional, national and local actions for each priority for action within the plan. However, emerging issues and topics could be further supported by more VCs submitted in the region.
