Launched in 2015

ARISE Japan is a well established Network. Private companies in Japan established ARISE Japan right after the United Nations adopted the Sendai Framework in 2015.

ARISE Japan’s Action Plan for 2019-2022 has been published as a Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitment (SFVC) at the SFVC online platform and annual activities contribute towards the five deliverables.
