Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030

Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030

Purpose:

The framework aims to achieve the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries over the next 15 years.

The framework applies to the risk of small-scale and large-scale, frequent and infrequent, sudden and slow-onset disasters, caused by natural or manmade hazards as well as related environmental, technological and biological hazards and risks. It aims to guide the multi-hazard management of disaster risk in development at all levels as well as within and across all sectors.

Overview:

The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 outlines seven clear targets and four priorities for action to prevent new and reduce existing disaster risks: (i) Understanding disaster risk; (ii) Strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk; (iii) Investing in disaster reduction for resilience and; (iv) Enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response, and to “Build Back Better” in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction.

The Framework was adopted at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, Japan, on March 18, 2015.

The strategy has 4 strategic axes:

  • Strategic Axis 1: Together with the most at risk populations Red Cross Red Crescent builds resilience at community level through Disaster Risk Reduction.
  • Strategic Axis 2: National Society Disaster Risk Reduction capacity and performance is systematically, efficiently and cost-effectively enhanced.
  • Strategic Axis 3: Ensuring an effective local, national, regional, and global disaster response that contributes to Disaster Risk Reduction and strengthens community resilience.
  • Strategic Axis 4: Institutionalizing strategic partnerships at all levels within the RCRC Movement and with external partners.

Making it Count. Integrating Gender into Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction: A Practical How-To Guide

Making it Count. Integrating Gender into Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction: A Practical How-To Guide

Purpose

This guide gives suggestions on how to address gender and women’s empowerment in climate change and disaster risk reduction (DRR) projects, or projects which have integrated climate change and DRR considerations.

Overview

Three steps are involved in conducting a gender analysis:

  • Analyse the broader context: This includes exploring gender and sex-disaggregated secondary data; mapping policies and laws related to human rights and gender policies, and commitments and implementation of Conventions such as the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW); investigating wider cultural norms, values and practices related to gender (for example, expectations of how individuals should act, or customs related to marriage).
  • Select and investigate key areas: investigating key areas related to the type of intervention being designed or implemented; exploring these areas through review of secondary data and exercises with participants and stakeholders; paying attention to the individual, relational and structural levels.
  • Prioritise practical and strategic gender issues: identifying practical issues which involve addressing immediate gender issues and needs, such as providing financial training for women business owners so that they may improve their income. Practical needs should be addressed in order to ensure the equal and sustainable impact of projects. It is also important to identify strategic factors, such as laws or social norms, which must be tackled in order to transform unequal gender relations in the long-term. If strategic factors are ignored, practical solutions are likely to have minimal sustainable impact.

Integrating gender concerns into the objectives and activities for disaster prevention, preparedness, response and recovery, based on national disaster risk management plans and OCHA’s minimum preparedness activities

Integrating gender concerns into the objectives and activities for disaster prevention, preparedness, response and recovery, based on national disaster risk management plans and OCHA’s minimum preparedness activities

Purpose

This paper looks at how to integrate gender into the objectives and activities to be carried out for disaster prevention, preparedness, response and recovery.

Overview

  • Activities to be carried out for disaster prevention are: hazard and risk analysis; providing gender technical support in developing early warning (EW) information systems; public awareness to high risk groups on hazards and risks and likely consequences in times of disaster; and developing a legislative and policy framework.
  • Activities to be carried out for preparedness are: vulnerability assessment; information management (IM); contingency planning (CP); resource mobilisation; and developing coordination mechanisms and structures.
  • Activities for response are: rapid needs assessment; resource mobilisation; protection; and emergency assistance.
  • Activities for recovery are: damage and loss assessment; rehabilitation; livelihoods recovery; and property and documentation recovery

Usage: Guidance for project implementation

Audiences: Technical staff

Integrating Gender Issues in Community-Based Disaster Risk Management

Integrating Gender Issues in Community-Based Disaster Risk Management

Purpose

This note is the fourth in a series of guidance notes on gender issues in Disaster Risk Management (DRM) in East Asia and the Pacific. The first part of this note looks at reasons to adopt a gender-sensitive approach for community-based DRM. The second part focuses on tools to support a gender conscious approach to community-based DRM efforts.

The note is grounded in extensive fieldwork in Lao PDR and Vietnam.

Overview

Reasons to adopt a Gender Sensitive Community-based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM) Approach include:

  • The aim of DRM is to reduce vulnerabilities and build the resilience of communities to the external shocks of disasters. Using a gender-sensitive approach ensures that DRM is conducted in a comprehensive way, addressing the needs and harnessing the capacity of all people living in the community.
  • A gender-sensitive CBDRM approach can have a positive impact on many aspects of women and men’s lives. Working with existing women’s networks helps strengthening women’s participation in the community’s decision-making processes.

Usage: Guidance for project implementation
