The main objective of the webinar is to highlight how good disaster risk governance, planning and implementation leads to reduced numbers of people affected by disasters (especially in terms of death, injury, displacement and loss of livelihood).
The webinar will focus on Target E and disaster risk governance and the need to develop policy, legislative frameworks, and institutional architecture and associated investment vehicles for disaster risk reduction in line with the goal, targets and priorities for action of the Sendai Framework.
Highlight the challenges, demonstrate a deep understanding of disaster risk, and allow for a more complete engagement of communities to take an active part in contributing to the development and implementation of national and local strategies for disaster risk reduction.
Address the full scope of the Sendai Framework in the strategies for DRR which applies to disasters caused by natural or man-made hazards, as well as related environmental, technological and biological hazards and risks.
Identify clear actions that we can take in the Arab countries, communities, individuals, and organizations to improve how we manage disaster risk in order to reduce it and how to avoid creating new risk by systematically reduce existing risk. Also, reflect on how we can strengthen the capacity of people, communities, countries and systems to anticipate, withstand and recover better from shocks and stresses and transform through crises.
