Build Back Better and WRC Outcomes
- Yuki; Paul
The Sendai Framework urges national and local governments as well as communities to prioritize building back better in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction from disasters. This means rebuilding communities and livelihoods with improved assets and capacities, with greater resilience and reduced vulnerabilities, and integrating disaster risk reduction across the sustainable development agenda. Building back better in recovery offers a critical opportunity that must be adequately planned for, resourced and implemented, as communities must not be restored to pre-disaster status quo vulnerabilities.
This session deliberated on objectives and strategies to build back better to ensure that recovery efforts are inclusive, efficient, effective, equitable, and deliver impact. This session investigated practical mechanisms and success factors for building back better and highlight lessons learnt in preparedness and implementation of building back better, based on concrete examples of challenges and best practices.
