Parliamentary protocol for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation: Aligned with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030
This Parliamentary Protocol for Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation seeks to guide parliamentary work to meet national disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation needs. It also seeks to support the legislative branch’s contributions to the implementation of the Sendai Framework and provide tools for parliaments to use in helping to strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to climate change.
The content of this document is aligned with the four priorities of the Sendai Framework and is presented as a parliamentary protocol that contains a set of actions that parliamentarians can take to incorporate disaster risk reduction into legislative measures, contribute to strengthening disaster risk management and reduction capacities in their countries and promote capacity building in response and adaptation to disasters and the impacts of extreme events associated with climate change. Chapter 2 outlines the four priorities of the Sendai Framework and provides parliamentarians with key information and additional references related to the actions included within the protocol that should be considered during their implementation.
