The present report has been prepared as requested by the General Assembly in resolution 75/216 on disaster risk reduction. It contains an overview of progress made towards the goal, global targets and priorities for action of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and serves to identify good practice that can support countries to overcome challenges to effective implementation.
Data on progress towards the seven global targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 reported to the Sendai Framework monitor reveal a mixed picture of progress and challenges. As of April 2021, the average annual number of dead and missing persons in the event of a disaster per 100,000 people (global target A) has fallen from 1.98 between 2005 and 2014 to 1.32 between 2011 and 2020. However, the number of persons affected by disasters per 100,000 people (global target B) has grown from an average of 1,981 to 3,145 per year for the same periods.
