Standards for Disaster Risk Reduction: ECE/TRADE/424

The aim of this bi-lingual Publication (ECE/TRADE/424) is to help bring voluntary standards into the toolbox of disaster risk reduction, including both by encouraging their use by business and by enhancing their role in regulatory practice and policy-making more generally. To this end, the paper shows the potential the standards have in the prevention and management of disaster risks, and in situations of disruption and crisis, and more generally in the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) 2015-2030, adopted at the Third UN World Conference in Sendai, Japan, on March 18, 2015 and endorsed by the UN General Assembly in June 2015
