dc.description.abstract The Sendai Framework (SFDRR), a landmark international framework adopted in 2015, calls for a shift from managing disasters to managing risks. This requires a more holistic approach to risks and a stronger focus on risk-creation processes, and it presents opportunities to approach disaster risk reduction (DRR) as an integral part of sustainable development. The SFDRR was endorsed last March 2015. There has been much discussion on what the SFDRR encompasses, and it is obviously difficult to cover all aspects of DRR in short documents. The journey started with the Yokohama Declaration (1994) and moved onto the Hyogo Framework (2005). Integrated Research on Disaster Risk (IRDR)’s Risk Interpretation and Action (RIA) focuses on four priority areas such as decision-making for uncertainty; early warning systems; adaptive management and resilience; and individual perceptions and risk behaviour. This paper will share the how RIA project leveraging to achieve Sendai Framework road map under four thematic areas of SFDRR. Science has gone through a highly advanced stage but there is still more to go. Unfortunately much of the scientific information is never incorporated into the operational domain for decision-making, and very little has been incorporated down to the community level to respond to disaster risks. The paper also highlights the gaps and needs for science application to achieve SFDRR. en
