Redesigning Systems for Resilience through Recovery: Assessing Progress and the Unfinished Agenda at the Midpoint of the Sendai Framework


As the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 approaches its midpoint, the United Nations General Assembly has mandated a midterm review of its implementation, with specific reference made to assessing progress toward its core provision to "build back better". The global pandemic, climate change, and setbacks to the Sustainable Development Goals underscore the necessity of assessing progress and challenges in building back better to date, and to collectively consider adjustments and actions necessary to implement Priority 4 moving forward.

The International Recovery Forum 2022 will provide reflections on the implementation of Priority 4 and the challenges that remain, while setting a forward-looking agenda for continued progress. It will feature retrospective and prospective discussions between recovery policymakers and experts on focused themes in recovery for enhanced implementation of building back better so that communities can recover faster, more equitably and with greater resilience from disasters.
