In January 2005, 168 Governments adopted a 10-year plan to make the world safer from natural hazards at the World Conference on Disaster Reduction, held in Kobe, Hyogo, Japan.
The Hyogo Framework was the global blueprint for disaster risk reduction efforts between 2005 and 2015. Its goal was to substantially reduce disaster losses by 2015 - in lives, and in the social, economic, and environmental assets of communities and countries.
On 18 March 2015, UN Member States adopted the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, the successor instrument to the Hyogo Framework for Action.
HFA progress reports reflect national, local and regional progress in the implementation of disaster risk reduction actions and establishes baselines on levels of progress achieved in implementing the HFA's five priorities for action.
The HFA Monitoring and Progress Review process facilitates the self-assessment of disaster risk reduction measures at the national, regional and global levels.
Includes guidelines for implementing the Hyogo Framework, reporting on the progress of HFA implementation, establishing and strengthening National Platforms, and others.
