Close collaboration with academia in Ethiopia to integrate IRM in DRM strategy & DRM communication strategy

Abstract: This IRM sensitive DRM strategy becomes central to sustainable development. As such, the framework contributes to implement the federal DRM policy and strategy and achievement of the agenda 2030 and 2063 for sustainable development. This strategy is not only timely in view of the increasing number and impact of disasters in the region but also contributes to the region’ implementation of the ‘Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030’ adopted during the Third UN WCDRR in March 2015 and subsequently endorsed by the federal government of Ethiopia DRM policy in the year 2013 and next Growth & Transformation period. It also addresses knowledge gaps in DRM by improving systems and networks for the collection and analysis of information on disasters, vulnerabilities and disaster risks to facilitate informed decision-making.

Speaker(s):

  • Support by Mr. Mohammed Husen
