The priority audiences for the Science and Policy Forum are:

  • Other stakeholders from civil society, business, media working on supporting evidence-based DRR

Key objectives of the Science and Policy Forum for DRR 2019 are:

  1. To share and review progress in global, regional, national and local implementation of science-based policy making, risk sensitive development as a basis for enhanced engagement between science and policy for risk-informed decision-making across the 2030 Agenda;
  2. To identify the key knowledge gaps and opportunities to strengthen the contributions of a comprehensive, interdisciplinary science base to delivering the Sendai Framework including through the operationalization of the Global Science and Technology Road Map;
  3. To commit collectively to enhanced collaboration for an integrated science approach to DRR, climate change adaptation and sustainable development;
  4. To fill the current gap in knowledge and application of new technologies for disaster-risk reduction and enhanced resilience.
