Description
After affirming their commitment last month to a landmark 2015 accord on limiting damage, losses and death from natural and man-made disasters by 2030, Member States gathered once again at the General Assembly Hall today, together with intergovernmental and other organizations, to spotlight how they are working to reduce risk and strengthen resilience, pointing to gaps in capacities and financing amid increasing weather-related disasters.

Some delegates drew attention to the widespread destruction caused by recent cyclones that hit their regions and urged the international community to provide immediate help and enhance support. nbsp;

In mid-May, during a two-day high level meeting at United Nations Headquarters, Member States had adopted a wide-ranging political declaration pledging to fully implement the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. nbsp;(For background, see Press Release GA/15202).

At today’s meeting, intergovernmental organizations took the floor to highlight challenges to implementing the Sendai Framework, echoing calls for increased financing given their regions’ climate vulnerabilities.
