UNISDR Policy Brief-FINAL

This report outlines the experience of World Vision on Disaster Risk Reduction and advises on how to best support the implementation of the Sendai Framework in these fragile contexts.

This report calls for increased action and attention to multi-faceted aspects of preventative approaches to disaster risk and includes World Vision’s priorities for the 2017 Global Platform, as well as suggestions based on programmes implemented by World Vision in various contexts.
