This document is the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR), developed in Sendai Japan in 2015 at the UN conference on Disaster Risk Reduction. It builds upon and succeeds the Hyogo Framework for Action, proposing an enhanced framework for action. In particular, it shifts from disaster management to disaster risk management, emphasises the risk prevention and sets the goal of strengthening resilience. The framework also broadens the scope of disaster to include both natural and human-made hazards. It further highlights the importance of preparedness and of including all concerned actors for a more comprehensive response.
