The Sendai Framework monitoring process provides an opportunity for UN Member States to benchmark, measure and concretely track their progress in disaster risk reduction. Since its launch in 2018, more than 150 countries have reported on at least one of seven Sendai Framework targets. UNDRR has used this information to develop analytical reports on the progress in implementation of the Sendai Framework and related SDG targets.

However, the aim of the Sendai Framework Monitor extends beyond compliance in reporting and assessing progress. It is also a means to provide an analytical and evidence base for risk-informed planning through garnering statistically rigorous and government-owned data. It also demonstrates applications in development and humanitarian spheres.

The UNDRR Technical Forum on Sendai Framework Monitoring will:

  • Share good practices in national reporting on the Sendai Framework implementation
  • Explore current and potential applications of Sendai Framework monitoring data
  • Highlight the role of disaster-related statistics in risk-informed governance through targeted analysis.

The Forum will bring together governments and stakeholders to discuss how to transition from data collection to analysis and decision-making for climate and disaster risk resilient development. The Forum will further provide an opportunity to share good practices in Sendai Framework reporting and monitoring, as well as avenues of support to the process. It will also explore the central role of disaster-related statistics in scaling-up and strengthening risk governance at regional and national level.

Target Audience

  • Sendai Framework focal points from Member States
  • National Statistical Offices and line ministries involved in Sendai Monitoring and/or disaster-related statistics
  • UN organizations who are supporting Member States in this process and who are also potential users of the monitoring data
  • Stakeholders and international organizations with an interest in disaster and climate risk and impact analytics

The zoom-based webinar will be structured around interactive sessions with live demonstrations and plenary discussions. Availability of interpretation is to be confirmed. Two similar sessions will be held to accommodate different time zones.

Session 2

Use and Impact of Sendai Framework Monitor Data: Potential applications in climate action and other thematic areas

In this session, presenters will investigate the future use of the available data in different sectoral and thematic areas that could benefit from the country reporting. How can climate action be informed by the geography of losses? How can data on mortality and economic losses from disasters influence financing for disaster risk reduction in the future? How can the reporting on multi-hazard early warning systems help to reprioritize focus for vulnerable countries that are in need for such warnings and early action?
