The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction was adopted in 2015 to overcome challenges due to inherent vulnerabilities and the persistent lack of capacity to strengthen resilience. However, we are halfway through the timeline for implementation of the Framework, and only a third of all SIDS are covered by early warning systems, with uneven progress towards the rest of the Sendai Targets. By analyzing the gaps and challenges targeted actions to accelerate progress towards the Sendai targets can be generated and contribute to the priorities for the Fourth SIDS Conference in 2024. This new report provides recommendations for SIDS to address their shared challenges in implementing the Sendai Framework, including the lack of human, institutional and technological capacity, the inadequacy of investments and financial resources, and persistent constraints in data generation and analysis.
