Fostering Practical Coherence of Global Agendas for Resilience
Commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Global Initiative on Disaster Risk Management is strengthening international and national, governmental and non-governmental stakeholders in their effort to achieve coherence with regard to planning, implementing and reporting disaster risk management in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Paris Agreement and other international agendas, such as Agenda 2030 and Habitat III.
What is Disaster Risk Management?
Disaster risk management is a continuous process that involves physical and non-physical measures and takes account of the underlying risk factors within a society. Disaster risk management aims to avoid the generation of new risks, improves resilience to the effects of natural events and contributes to sustainable development. (BMZ, based on IPCC 2012)
What is Coherence?
Coherence refers to the establishment of synergies between different policies with regard to overarching goals. (Guido Ashoff, 2010)
Agenda coherence in DRM thus means a united promotion of resilience via the implementation of all post 2015-agendas.
