The UNDRR’s Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction is undergoing a formal mid-term review to take stock of implementation and impact since its launch in 2015, understand what context shifts have occurred, and identify how to accelerate uptake to 2030 and beyond. There is currently no formal policy position from engineers on the Sendai Framework.
The International Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (ICSI), with support from the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), led a multi-lingual consultation to elicit the views from the global engineering community. This publication is the only contribution from the engineering community that will feed into the formal Mid-term Review process of the Sendai Framework.
