#INSTA This is an emergency action opportunity to promote SDG18 DISASTER RISK RESILIENCE for global disaster security with reference to the #SendaiFramework for Disaster Response (DRR). Local government leaders must prioritise climate change action (CCA) to mitigate and prepare for urban disaster risk reduction (DRR). Non-avoidable risk-impact assessment in urban planning and design
Local implementation calls for the recognition and strengthening of local actors as agents for sustainable urban development and the promotion of decentralised government systems.
Every council’s planning committees casting plans way ahead of the next World Habitat Conference 2036.
By adopting SDG18 DISASTER RISK RESILIENCE will provide insightful examples for cities not only on the planning and implementing of the risk-sensitive plans but also on engaging multi-sectoral dialogue in resilience building processes; Risk-Informed Subnational Development Planning at all levels to put in place strong governance foundations so that risk-informed development can be sustained in near future planning and budgeting processes, tools, plans and policies, which in turn contributes directly to the implementation of Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the New Urban Agenda and SDGs.
The SDG18 would deliver risk-informed development through a comprehensive range of services, e.g. strengthen financial and institutional capacity within the #GlobalGoals.
