7th Africa Working Group Meeting on Disaster Risk Reduction

Date: 

11/05/2015

Description: 

The Africa Working Group (AWG) on Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) meets bi-annually to take stock of the progress made regionally on the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) and the Africa Regional Strategy for DRR and its Extended Programme of Action: 2006-2015. 

The seventh extended Africa AWG meeting takes place following the adoption of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (SFDRR), thus the overall objective will be to agree on concrete follow-up actions and political commitments to ensure effective implementation of the SFDRR in the continent. 

More specifically, in an effort to deliver on the Decision of the Executive Council of the AU in January 2015, the extended AWG meeting will focus on the review of the programme of action and regional and national DRR programmes and their alignment with the SFDRR. The High-level meeting will consider the outcome of the extended AWG technical meeting and adopt recommendations on concrete commitments to facilitate and support full implementation of the SFDRR across Africa.
