This High-Level Dialogue presented an opportunity to share national and local level experiences in formulating, and operationalizing risk reduction strategies compliant with the Sendai Framework and their links with other policy areas, including national development plans. It also considered enablers for future implementation of the strategies. Based on these considerations, strategic recommendations will be put forward for formulation and implementation of the strategies.
Key questions included:
• How can existing strategies be updated to align with the ten core elements of the Sendai Framework? How can DRR be mainstreamed into development plans, through the DRR strategies?
• What kind of awareness raising, and capacity development is required for DRR strategy development and implementation?
• How can Target (e) catalyse action around other Sendai targets?
The session identified good practices and opportunities in the process of developing inclusive DRR strategies and plans along with the key components for success in their elaboration, implementation, monitoring and follow-up.
