Science and technology (S&T) is the root of informed decision-making in disaster risk reduction (DRR). Role of S&T has got enhanced attention in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) and there has been prominent global and several regional initiatives to enhance multistakeholder partnership in implementing science-based decision-making. In Asia, an advisory group is formed, followed by benchmarking the status of S&T application, a regional conference and an endeavor to bring S&T in the national planning process to implement SFDRR. To continue this, multistakeholder partnership is required for science technology community needs to focus on the new role of S&T, apart from the technological innovation only. Thus success of S&T in implementing SFDRR depends on (1) a proactive role in collaboration with relevant government department and support science-based decision-making, (2) promoting innovation through field needs and priorities, and (3) codesigning solutions with different stakeholders.
