Mr. Amjad Abbashar, Chief of the UNDRR Africa Regional Office opened the webinar noting that, “UNDRR advocates for the empowerment of local governments and communities, as they are often the first line of response to disasters”. Through the Making Cities Resilient Campaign, UNDRR has been able to support the implementation of the Sendai Framework in coherence with the development agenda in collaboration with partners. “As we look beyond 2020, we seek to strengthen these partnerships to accelerate efforts towards the achievement of the 2030 targets”, Mr. Abbashar said. In addition, the Sendai Framework calls for a comprehensive approach to disaster risk reduction that is based on an all of society engagement that acknowledges the role of different stakeholders in the agenda.
