The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) Stakeholder Engagement Mechanism (SEM) presents all non-state actors with the possibility to engage in the follow-up and implementation of the Sendai Framework. The conference will be on the next 27th of March 2023 at Geneva time 15:00 - 16:30 (New York time 09:00).
It creates an open and structured avenue to leverage stakeholders' voices and actions to support the performance of the Sendai Framework and integration of disaster risk reduction, prevention and resilience, and systemic into the broader 2030 Agenda.
2023 marks the midpoint in implementing the Sendai Framework, the 2030 Agenda and other 2015 agreements. Each one of these will go through a midterm review to examine context shifts and emerging issues since 2015, identify course corrections and new initiatives to more effectively address the systemic nature of risk, and realise the outcomes and goals of the Sendai Framework, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement and other agreements, frameworks and conventions.
Convened by the President of the General Assembly, the High-Level Meeting (HLM) of the General Assembly on the Midterm Review of the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (HLM) will take place from 18-19 May 2023 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. The HLM provides a platform for Member States, the United Nations system partners and other stakeholders to reflect on the findings and recommendations of the Midterm Review.
SEM invites all interested stakeholders to a meeting that will focus on means of stakeholder engagement within the HLM MTR SF, as well as the process leading up to it.
Here, the objectives, the schedule, and the contact details of the conference are reported.
