Learning from the Voluntary National Reviews within Research & Reflecting on Challenges After the Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework

Join DR3 for a virtual event on July 11, from 9 to 10:15am (EST/GMT-4:00)

  

Registration is available at the following link: https://go.unc.edu/DR3HLPF  

Acknowledging the world’s interlinked agenda for disaster resilience, Re-Energize Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience (DR3) is an international collaboration among nine universities focused on building governance strategies for resilience and vulnerable groups.

This event will deal with the vulnerability and risk of countries focusing on governance gaps that can be addressed to build coastal resilience for nations, geographies, and vulnerable groups.

Specifically, presenters will show how studies in coastal resilience strategies concern communities, households, and vulnerable groups while engaging with Voluntary National Reports (VNRs) for the Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework. Additionally, they will look forward to exploring how to improve stakeholder engagement in disaster risk reduction and resilience now that the Sendai Review has been completed.

This session will offer governments and stakeholders the chance to gather a deeper understanding of differences in the needs and strategies for achieving coastal resilience by 2030. The objective is to contextualize the VNRs within the research and policy field to illuminate challenges and opportunities to improve engagement in the governance of risk-reduction and resilience building.
