Local disaster risk reduction strategies and plans in urban areas

Developing urban resilience has been the subject of a global effort and is enshrined in a number of international frameworks – including the Sendai Framework, the 2030 Agenda and NUA – all of which recognize the importance of urban action by local and subnational governments to create inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable human settlements.370 At the United Nations WCDRR in 2015, local and subnational governments also committed to adopting local DRR strategies and plans, targets, indicators and time frames, as outlined in the Sendai Declaration of Local and Subnational Governments. This agenda recognizes the role of local governments as the primary, responsible authority during disasters, emphasizing the need for greater international collaboration with local and subnational governments.
