Localizing the Sendai Framework for DRR

Despite their crucial role in achieving the resilience of their cities and territories, local and regional governments’ actions in this realm have been limited due to a multitude of challenges they face. Local and regional governments (LRGs) need, among others, enhanced capacity as well as enabling institutional, technical, and financial environments to fulfill the localization of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (Sendai Framework or SFDRR).

The Resilience Learning Modules for the localization of the Sendai Framework, developed by United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), in partnership with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and the United Nations Human Settlements Program (UN-Habitat), aim to support local authorities in the creation of an enabling environment for disaster risk reduction (DRR), and the development of resilience building actions and strategies.
