Launch of the First Synthesis and Analysis Report of the Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments
- Yuki Matsuoka (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform, launched on 31 December 2018, supports all-of-society and multi-stakeholder engagement for supporting the implementation of the Sendai Framework. By submitting and having their Voluntary Commitments (VCs) published in the SFVC online platform, stakeholders can: inform, letting the public know about their work; learn and collaborate, knowing who is doing what and where to explore synergies and create new commitments; and motivate, allowing good practices to be highlighted. In return, the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction can monitor and take stock of the work done to increase the effectiveness of stakeholders’ shared responsibility towards DRR.
This session will present the first synthesis and analysis report of the SFVC. The report: a) provides an initial synthesis of the VCs which have been submitted or updated within the 1st phase of the SFVC online platform; b) includes an analysis of the VCs according to the priorities for action and targets of the Sendai Framework along with other DRR themes and issues, including SDGs to provide an overview of contributions by stakeholders’ initiatives; and c) identifies good practices and achievements to motivate other stakeholders to act on DRR and support implementing the Sendai Framework. These analyses will also try to identify gaps, challenges and opportunities for future implementation of the Sendai Framework. Last but not least, the session will also include presentations by stakeholders on their VCs to share their achievements and good practices.
