E-Learning: Orientation to using the online Sendai Framework Monitor

This course from the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) aims to train government officials and relevant stakeholders involved in reporting national progress using the online Sendai Framework Monitor.
