In 2015 The United Nations (UN) implemented the Sendai Framework for Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (SFDRR). This is a policy aimed at preventing and managing natural disasters. In this study, the policy theory of SFDRR is evaluated on its efficiency. The following research question is answered in this study: To what extent is the political theory of the United Nations risk policy made effective? Effectiveness is measured here by reconstructing the political theory of the SFDRR-policy and testing it against the SMART criteria. By means of reconstruction, the causal assumptions, which underlie the policy theory, are exposed. The evaluation of these assumptions result in the understanding of to what extent the policy theory is effectively formulated. The evaluation shows that the policy theory meets only one of the criteria of the SMART evaluation. Thus, it can be concluded that the policy theory is weak in its efficiency. Based on this evaluation several recommendations for improvement are done, including a more detailed and concrete formulation of objectives, so that countries, communities and organisations can use the SFDRR as what it is intended for: a practical guide for the implementation of risk and disaster management.
