In conjunction with the 6h Global Summit of GADRI, a Side Event on the Sendai Midterm Review - Viewpoints and Discussion for the Next Seven Years of the Sendai Framework will be held on 14 March 2023 from 13:00 to 17:00 at the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University, Uji Campus, Oubaku Plaza.
The session will look into viewpoints and discuss actions needed by GADRI members and from disaster research in general.
In addition to considering the current progress towards accomplishing the seven global targets of the Sendai Framework, GADRI aims to discuss:
- Whether there is still something that can be the done to improve contributions to the remaining seven years of the Sendai Framework.
The seven global targets of the SF show critically that there is still more work that needs to be done and to come up with a feasible roadmap for the full implementation of the Sendai Framework. What therefore is the current status of the MTR-SF?
- From a researchers' point of view, what needs to be prioritised in the S&T Roadmap and within the Sendai Midterm Review?
- In what way GADRI can encourage members to create a framework of activity in relation to Sendai Framework, SDGs, and IPCC, IPBES for the next seven years?
- How can GADRI make knowledge and development of DRR be understood and accessible in civil society and amongst multi-stakeholders based on the all-of-society approach of the SF. How can the related science and technology be understood not only by the government or scientists but also by civil society, private sectors, academicians, and others?
The summary note of recommendations will be shared among the participants during the 6th Global Summit of GADRI. Once finalised, the summary recommendations will be submitted to UNDRR.
The event will be held at the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University, Uji Campus, Oubaku Plaza.
Registration is free of charge.
