Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
An outcome document adopted at the Third United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, held in March 2015 in Sendai, Japan. It sets four priority actions and seven targets for achievement by 2030.
UNDP works in nearly 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results. UNDP focuses on helping countries build and share solutions in three main areas:Sustainable development, Democratic governance and peacebuilding and Climate and disaster resilience. In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women, minorities and the poorest and most vulnerable.
Tohoku University was established in 1907 as Japan's third national university, and is ranked among its leading universities, with its five main campuses in Sendai city. The International Research Institute of Disaster Science (IRIDeS) was founded in 2012, as Tohoku University's newest research institution. Learning lessons from the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, about 100 researchers in fields in the humanities, sciences, engineering, and medicine, endeavor to invent a deeper disaster science and more practical research on disaster risk reduction. Making efforts in forging links with industry, government, academia, and citizens in Japan as well as abroad, IRIDeS aims at both the revival of Tohoku disaster areas and the reduction of disasters worldwide.
