The UNDRR Work Programme 2020-2021 outlines the plans to accelerate the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The plans are developed in line with the existing Strategic Framework covering 2016-2021 and focuses on the key results under each Strategic Objective of UNDRR.
During 2020-2021 increased emphasis will be on the achievement of Target (e) which calls for “substantial increase in the number of countries with national and local disaster risk reduction strategies by 2020” using capacity development, technical assistance and knowledge products as key tools.
As the disaster risk reduction focal point within the UN System, UNDRR will work at global, regional and national levels to identify synergies to improve coordination within countries. In line with the Secretary-General’s reform agenda, the work programme envisions greater coherence across the UN family and key stakeholders so that climate action and sustainable development policies and initiatives are risk informed.
