Alumni Update: Andy McElroy (IDHA 16)

Andy McElroy recently authored the article Sendai Framework takes root in Central Asia,” in which he highlights the work of Mayor Ryskul Urkalyevich of Karakol, in North-eastern Kyrgyzstan, who has been inspired to strengthen his city’s resilience after representing his municipality at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai this past March. Andy’s two most recent articles focus on examples where the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction is being implemented at the country and city level: New Zealand has adopted a “whole of society approach” to implement the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction while Da Nang, on Vietnam’s Central Coast, has embraced the Sendai Framework’s call for partnership which is identified as a vital element in global efforts to reduce disaster risk.
