The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 provides a focus on risk-sensitive development of communities. This is about mitigating disaster impacts and reducing underlying drivers of risk, building back better after a disaster, and strengthening community and environmental resilience.
Building on the Sendai Guiding Principles, it is the primary responsibility of states to prevent new risks and reduce existing risks with the engagement of all-of society and all-state institutions. The Asia Regional Plan provides a broad policy direction to guide the implementation of the Sendai Framework and a two-year Action Plan with specific activities to be implemented by the Governments and Stakeholder Groups. The following case studies demonstrate the Red Cross Red Crescent contribution to climate-smart disaster risk reduction action in Asia Pacific.
