Online tools and reference materials to advance the production of SDG and Sendai indicators related to disasters in LAC countries

 

This is a virtual space that builds on the advances of the Group in its previous periods and creates a web space like a portal of information and related tools.

One of the most common challenges among countries is the confidentiality of data and the systematization at the country level of data from different sources.

In this sense, this web portal aims to be a space of multisectoral interest, of actors involved in the monitoring and reporting process and parties interested in advancing the agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

Some initial features: 

  • Didactic component with online teaching resources
  • User friendly and free, with agreed terminology and gender sensitive language.

Additional content considerations:

  • Minimum and desired requirements for the measurement of indicators.
  • Requirements for data quality.
  • Diagnosis and analysis of the quality of the data for the construction of the indicators.
  • Update of new information (with user access).
  • Interaction with other web platforms and related initiatives.
  • Contributions from the region to related processes at a global level and articulation with similar initiatives in other regions.

of implementation

___________

 

The Working Group on the Measurement of Indicators related to Disaster Risk Reduction (GT-DRR) was created in November 2017 within the framework of the IX Meeting of the Statistical Conference of the Americas (CEA/CEPAL) in a manner that responds to the commitments made by the Member States of the United Nations with the adoption of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the adoption in February 2017 of the report and recommendations of the Intergovernmental Working Group of Experts Open-Ended Forum on Indicators and Terminology Related to Disaster Risk Reduction (OIEWG) through Resolution A/RES/71/276 of the United Nations General Assembly. These indicators correspond directly to indicators of targets 1.5, 11.5, 11.b and 13.1 of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Period 2022-2023

___________

 

In order to continue and innovate the advances of DRR and the improvement of data quality already proposed by the GT-DRR in previous periods, for the 2022-2023 biennium the group has the challenge of strengthening information management practices statistics related to Disaster Risk Reduction based on disaster-related SDG indicators and the Sendai Framework.

 

For this purpose, the group proposes the creation of "an online toolkit and reference materials to advance the production of SDG and Sendai indicators related to disasters in LAC countries."

 

This toolbox is not only a mechanism to have online access to materials, information and supplies for DRR, but it is constituted from the institutional and methodological recommendations and its Matrix of Requirements proposed by the GT-DRR for the year 2020-2021. Hence, the proposal highlights the importance of applying and giving sustainability to the proposed actions and joining new efforts in the process of reducing disaster risks in the region.

Period 2020-2021

___________

 

The Working Group on the Measurement and Registration of Indicators Related to Disaster Risk Reduction (GT-DRR), has an important role in the integration and contribution of global efforts for the measurement, registration and reporting of indicators of the goals of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the SDG indicators related to disasters. integration and contribution of global efforts for the measurement, registration and reporting of indicators of the goals of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the SDG indicators related to disasters.

 

For the 2020-2021 period, the Working Group is responsible for preparing the document "Institutional and methodological recommendations for measuring SDG indicators related to disasters and the Sendai Framework for DRR". It constitutes a base and reference tool on recommendations and a general statistical methodological procedure for the generation of quality data for the measurement of the 38 indicators and 7 goals of the Sendai Framework and the SDGs related to Disaster Risk Reduction. This document is accompanied by a matrix of requirements that constitutes a preliminary tool to collect the information and data of importance for this purpose.

 

The material developed during this period has been possible thanks to the support of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation AECID.

Period 2018-2019

___________

 

For the 2018-2019 period, the Working Group is responsible for initiating the work to understand and strengthen the role of statistics in measuring the 38 indicators and 7 goals of the Sendai Framework and the SDGs related to reducing the risk of disasters. As part of this task, the integration of data related to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) within official statistics is sought, thus benefiting from rigor, solidity and quality, backed by the fundamental principles of National Statistical Offices.

 

As part of this objective, the group generates a "Theoretical Framework" that contributes to the conceptual and theoretical knowledge of statistics and disaster risk, in order to strengthen the understanding of the data for the use of the measurement of the indicators of the Framework from Sendai.

Methodological references

and documents 

___________

 

The institutional and methodological proposal of the GT-DRR is based on a series of six steps that can contribute to the estimation of the 38 indicators of the Sendai Framework and the 11 SDG indicators related to disasters. This proposal is a contribution to efforts carried out at the global level by the Interinstitutional and Expert Group on Statistics Related to Disasters and to other global and regional initiatives related to disaster risk statistics.

 

The institutional recommendations show a series of relevant global, regional and national documents, tools and instruments, aimed at strengthening knowledge and statistical criteria for improving the quality and processing of useful data for the calculation and estimation of indicators. of the Sendai Framework.

 

Disaster risk managers and those responsible for collecting information for the estimation of Sendai Framework indicators are expected to find it useful.
