    Abstract Disasters characteristics are changing: they are likely to be more frequent and intense in the future. Nations, communities, and individuals' current ability to deal with the impacts will be continuously undermined and insufficient to deal with more complex future disasters. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) 2015–2030 is a global strategy for reducing the risks of disasters. It has 4 priorities by which Priority 2 calls for strengthening disaster risk governance (DRG). We find that this short paper critically analyzes progress, challenges and strategies to strengthen DRG. We find that there is enormous progress for DRG planning and implementation at the international, regional and national level, mostly in terms of formation of organizations and networks for DRR.We call for increasing the capacity of local actors through providing more resources, data and capacity for decision making. We propose four strategies to deal with future complexities and uncertainties in DRR: reduce the underlying vulnerability as the root cause of disasters; be inclusive/leave no-one behind: focus on vulnerable groups, migrants and displaced; governing urban disaster risks; governing climate change adaptation and mitigation; and governing for resilience: towards adaptive and transformative governance.
