Prime Minister's Agenda 10: India's disaster risk management roadmap for sustainable development

This paper analyzes the linkages between the Indian Prime Minister's Agenda 10 on Disaster Risk Management and the three major agreements to which India is signatory to, including the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Paris Climate Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals. The aim of this document is to delineate key principles and to present actions for implementation in the form of a roadmap for disaster risk reduction in India. The roadmap also synthesizes the concerns of the three international agreements in the light of lessons drawn from three studies on climate resilient disaster management and developmental planning undertaken in Odisha, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.
