The ‘Regional HFA monitor’ is an online tool to capture the information on the status and
progress in disaster risk reduction efforts from a regional or sub-regional perspective.
The main rationale behind the sub/ regional HFA review process is to enhance the
understanding of the trans-boundary issues of disaster risk and risk reduction;
and inform the sub/ regional planning and programming process on gaps and challenges
in disaster risk reduction efforts.
The sub/ regional review process is focusing on analysis of disaster risks and
progress in risk reduction efforts from a sub/ regional trans-boundary perspective;
synthesis of status and progress of HFA implementation at the national level;
providing an account of projects and initiatives carried out by sub/ regional
organizations; and identifying gaps and challenges in HFA implementation from a sub/regional perspective.
The tool has been designed by the UNISDR secretariat. Inputs to the regional
HFA monitor will lead to the generation of comprehensive 'Regional HFA Progress Reviews'
for the period 2011-2013.
The Regional HFA Monitoring tool is accessible to designated focal points in the regional
or sub-regional inter-governmental organizations. The designated focal points are assigned
a set of User id and password to initiate the progress review process for 2011-2013. Sub/ regional
inter-governmental organizations are encouraged to involve multiple organizations within the
region in the monitoring and review process.
When working online is inconvenient, you may download a Microsoft Word ‘Regional HFA Monitor’
sample template from the ‘Key documents’ section of your country page via PreventionWeb.
The sample template replicates, to the extent possible, the online Regional HFA Monitor tool.
Please download it and familiarize yourself with the requirements in advance of accessing the Regional
HFA Monitor online tool.
The regional focal points are encouraged to use this as a working format to undertake Regional
multi-stakeholder consultation processes to review progress and challenges in the implementation
of risk reduction and recovery actions.
The template will help the regional coordinating authority to discuss and record inputs from
various partners in a systematic manner.
The Regional HFA Monitor templates will be available to download from PreventionWeb
