Description of the action
The aim of the framework is to achieve a 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. This will be achieved through four priority areas (UNISDR, 2015): Priority 1: Understanding disaster risk. Priority 2: Strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk. Priority 3: Investing in DRR for resilience. Priority 4: Enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response and to “Build Back Better” in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction. Within the aforementioned priority areas, seven global targets have been presented; • Substantially reduce global disaster mortality by 2030, compared to 2005-2015 • Substantially reduce the number of affected people globally by 2030, compared to 2005-2015 • Reduce direct disaster economic loss by 2030 • Substantially reduce disaster damage to critical infrastructure and disruption of basic services (health and educational facilities) through improving resilience by 2030 • Substantially increase the number of countries with national and local DRR strategies by 2020 • Substantially enhance international cooperation to developing countries to support their national actions by 2030 • Substantially increase the availability of and access to multi-hazard early warning systems and disaster risk information and assessments to the people by 2030 This framework is applicable to both small-scale and large-scale, frequent and infrequent, sudden and slowonset, man-made or natural disasters.
