1st World Summit on Leaving No One Behind, Geneva, 6th February 2019. The first of an annual event to bring attention to the plight of marginalised people when it comes to water and sanitation supply, and to trigger innovative solutions that use a Human Rights based Approach (HRBA). In 2020 it will feature Climate Change and Leaving No One Behind.
Through versatile advocacy UNISDR mobilizes diverse actors – from heads of state to mayors, parliamentarians, activists, scientists, business managers and journalists – to support disaster risk reduction, the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and related SDGs. As an example UNISDR and partners annually mark the World Tsunami Awareness Day by raising awareness on the risk caused by tsunamis. Incorporating disaster risk reduction education and awareness and effective multi-hazard early warnings into national and local disaster risk reduction strategies will be key to the achievement of the SDGs.
