Panel Discussion: The Sendai Framework (2015-2030)
13:40 – 15:00 Day 2 (25th April), Grand Salon Prestige
Panel Chair: Virginia Murray (PHE)
Overview: The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 recognizes the strong connection between health and disasters and promotes the concept of health resilience throughout. Several of the seven global targets stated in the Sendai Framework are directly related to health in terms of reducing disaster mortality, the number of affected people, disaster damage to critical infrastructure, and disruption of basic services such as health facilities. The Sendai Framework also maintains close coordination with other United Nations landmark agreements relevant to health such as the Sustainable Development Goals. However, the measurement of health-related indicators is challenging. Issues arise, for example, in linking deaths to disasters because of the complex interplay between exposure, risk, vulnerability, and hazards. The lack of a universal classification of disasters also means that recording of health data in disasters is not standardized. Developing the guidelines to enable data on the indicators to be collected and reported to support the Sendai targets requires engagement with a diverse range of stakeholders. This panel session will seek to provide strong collaboration and partnership that will be vital to achieving success.
Panellists: Oliver Morgan (WHO)
