Humanitarian assistance; Core contribution to UNDRR

Description

Core funding to the ODA eligible activities of the UNDRR (United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction). UNDRR (formerly UNISDR) is the United Nations focal point for disaster risk reduction. UNDRR oversees the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, supporting countries in its implementation and monitoring. The objective of the Sendai Framework is to reduce the human and economic impacts of disasters, to prevent the creation of new risk, reduce existing risk and increase resilience. The work of UNDRR also aims at linking disaster risk reduction, Agenda 2030 and climate agenda. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of biological risks and the impact of crises in health, economy and the whole society. With Finland’s funding, UNDRR will for example support least developed countries and small island developing states to prepare and implement their national disaster risk reduction strategies.
