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 supported by the a 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.
National reporting for 2014-2015 begins online, 17 February 2014. In the interim, please use offline template below.
The tool has been designed by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR). Inputs to the regional HFA monitor
will lead to the generation of comprehensive 'Regional HFA Progress Reviews' for the period 2013-2015.
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 User id and password to initiate
the progress review process for 2013-2015. (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 the Microsoft Word ‘Regional HFA Monitor’ sample template attached below.
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
