The Words into Action (WiA) Implementation Guide for Man-Made and Technological Hazards was developed by the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), and UN Environment. The implementation guidelines seeks to implement the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction, specifically by strengthening disaster management plans and raising awareness for better response to the risks of man-made and technological hazards.
The guidelines are pragmatic roadmaps to programming an effective implementation strategy. This is facilitated by promoting a good understanding of the main issues, obstacles, solution finding strategies, resourcing and aspects for efficient planning. The guidelines can hence be valuable resources for national and local capacity building, through workshops and training in academic and professional settings and also serve as a reference for policy and technical discussions.
