The Sustainable Development Goals, the
Sendai Framework and the Paris Climate
Agreement call for a significant shift from
piecemeal international assistance towards
harmonized and coordinated support that
is aligned with country priorities in order to

Preparedness Partnership (GPP), and seeks
to reach out to other partners in a Davos style
