JWNDRR Made Requests for the Implementation of Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030


In the end of the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 was adapted. Japan Women’s Network for Disaster Risk Reduction has made a series of requests to the Japanese government and United Nations to incorporate enhancement of the gender perspective, gender equality and women’s leadership, and necessity of women’s empowerment and training into Post-Hyogo Framework for Action, and it was a great success that a part of our requests was included in the Sendai Framework for DRR 2015-2030. To ensure the gender-related matters stated in the Sendai Framework implemented hereafter, we went to make requests to Prime Minister Abe and related ministers on April 22 and April 23.
