Papua New Guinea
National disaster risk reduction framework 2017-2030
The Papua New Guinea National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework (NDRRF) 2017-2030 represents international best practices in DRR stemming from the Sendai Framework. It aligns with the Framework for Resilient Development in the Pacific (2017-2030) and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Disaster Risk Reduction Plan. The NDRRF aims to raise understanding and awareness about the goals of the Sendai Framework, which seeks to prevent new and existing disaster risks through a comprehensive approach that reduces vulnerability and increases resilience. This framework provides a common DRR vision and mutual understanding for different government departments and agencies. The NDRRF also promotes improved communication, coordination and cooperation on DRR.
