Accountability and inclusion are central to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) implementation and are key cross-cutting considerations in the delivery of effective DRR. The event will focus on the progress of realisation of the SFDRR commitments towards inclusion. It will highlight the progress made at national and international level including reporting on the implementation of Dhaka Declaration on Disability and Disaster Risk Management as urged in Article 59 of the Chair’s Summary of Global Platform 2017. This event will also present an innovative and integrated approach from different stakeholders and global good practices on gender sensitive and disability- inclusive DRR.
This session brings together persons with disability, representatives from government, development partners, non-government organizations and academia to reflect on where we are now in terms of being accountable to SFDRR commitments on inclusion.
