Overview

Today, more than ever, achieving sustainable development and successfully reducing disaster risk through the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction depends on policy coherence across sectors while ensuring the alignment of disaster risk reduction with climate action. By monitoring targets and related indicators of the Sendai Framework, the UNDRR Bonn Office advocates and promotes synergies between DRR, climate change and ultimately sustainable development.

Sendai Framework Monitoring
Bonn - 3

Strong accountability is one of the corner stones of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The UNDRR Office in Bonn supports the monitoring process of the implementation of the Sendai Framework though seven targets and 38 indicators as well as its related dimensions reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals 1, 11 and 13.

The UNDRR Bonn office provides guidance to the Regional Offices for enhanced support to governments as they report on progress in reducing loss of life, numbers of people affected by disasters, economic losses and damage to critical infrastructure.  It provides this support engagement with a number of technical organizations within and outside of the UN and through technical guidance documentation, training packages and other data related initiatives.

Climate Change and Coherence
Bonn - 2

UNDRR Bonn enables countries to identify progress in the implementation of DRR related targets and indicators of the SDGs, while fostering coherence between DRR and climate change adaptation efforts. The Bonn Office will build on ongoing efforts at national and local levels to further promote coherence in the implementation of global frameworks. By creating synergies in implementing Sendai Framework Target e and the National Adaptation Plans (NAPs), countries have an opportunity to ensure coherence between disaster risk reduction, climate action and sustainable development policies and practices.
