The High-Level Meeting provides a forum for Member States, United Nations system partners, and other stakeholders to reflect on the findings and recommendations of the Sendai Framework Midterm Review and develop a forward-looking and risk-informed approach to addressing systemic risk more effectively.

The gathering will adopt a political declaration to reaffirm commitment and speed up implementation of the Sendai Framework through 2030.

Also, the plenary will present national perspectives on Sendai Framework implementation to date and identify initiatives to amplify and accelerate risk-informed action in order to realize the Sendai Framework’s objective and goal by 2030.

The plenary session is expected to chart sustainable paths for humanity and nature.

This is because of the systemic nature of risk and the shocks that goes across sectors, systems, and geographic approaches to understanding, managing, and mitigating risk, whether man-made, natural, environmental, climate-related, biological, or technological, must be reconsidered.

The session will also showcase national perspectives on the Sendai Framework’s implementation to date.

As per the UNDRR, Sendai Framework focuses on the adoption of measures which address the three dimensions of disaster risk (exposure to hazards, vulnerability and capacity, and hazard’s characteristics) in order to prevent the creation of new risk, reduce existing risk and increase resilience.
