Preventing El Niño Southern Oscillation episodes from becoming disasters: a ‘blueprint for action’

The Blueprint for Action (‘the Blueprint’) is a tool to support integrated, nationally-led and equity-driven plans to prepare for El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and other climate hazards, absorbing risks without jeopardizing development gains, and informing climate-smart development plans to reduce risk. The Blueprint encourages the global, regional, national and local partnerships necessary to support the implementation of these plans. Action is envisioned across the 15-year timeframe of the Agenda 2030, measured by progress against the targets and indicators of all eight international commitments and agreements which were endorsed/reviewed in 2014-2016.
