Virtual Event | Putting Words into Action – Addressing Disaster Displacement in DRR Strategies and Practice
25 November 2021, 14:00 - 15:00 CET This official side event, held on the occasion…
The GP17 is the first time that governments and other disaster risk reduction (DRR) stakeholders come together to take stock of the implementation of the Sendai Framework. The Framework recognizes disaster displacement as an important concern for people-centred DRR and provides several opportunities for DRR policy and practice to reduce and address displacement in the context of disasters and climate change. But much needs to be done to better implement concrete provisions at the local, national and regional levels to reduce displacement risks and address disaster displacement.
In the absence of a global target and indicator on displacement, governments may choose to include displacement among their national DRR targets and indicators as a useful and important marker of progress of having people at the centre of the implementation of the Sendai Framework.
Member States and partners are encouraged to use their statements and interventions to promote several key messages on disaster displacement:
These messages have been drafted at the request and in consultation with the PDD Steering Group and with contributions from the PDD Advisory Committee Members: International Organization for Migration (IOM), United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre (IDMC) and South American Network for Environmental Migrations (RESAMA). To see the detailed messages, please download the PDD Policy Brief and Messages from the right margin.
