While States have the overall responsibility for reducing disaster risk, it is a shared responsibility between Governments and relevant stakeholders. The Sendai Framework recognizes the important role played by the non-state stakeholders as enablers in providing support to States. This also ensures a rights-based approach that meets the equal access and functional needs of all individuals. The Sendai Framework further calls for a broader and people-centered preventive approach to disaster risk reduction that needs to be inclusive and accessible in order to be efficient and effective.

The working session will aim to develop the knowledge base to practically implement the Sendai Framework for and with the most marginalized groups of society. The session will address a system-wide perspective to inclusive implementation and monitoring of disaster risk reduction policies and provide sound evidence of their positive impact. The discussions will link with and build on the regional strategies and provide practical action steps for the planning, budgeting, implementing and monitoring of people-centered disaster risk reduction.
