European Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction (EFDRR)

Description:

The European Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction (EFDRR) serves as forum aiming to facilitate discussion and advances on disaster risk reduction issues in a coordinated fashion at the regional level by reducing risks and vulnerability and preventing the creation of new risks. The EFDRR objectives contribute to the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030; to support the National Disaster Risk Reduction Focal Points and the creation and enhancement of National Platforms; to encourage coordination, coherence and enhanced monitoring on progress in disaster risk reduction actions; and to facilitate exchanges among European countries on the implementation of the Sendai Framework for increased political space and enlarged opportunity of innovation in disaster risk reduction.
