Sendai Framework

Monitoring of the Sendai Framework: An Introduction

Strong accountability is one of the corner stones of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. A set of 38 indicators, recommended by an Open-ended Intergovernmental Expert Working Group, will track progress in implementing the seven targets of the Sendai Framework as well as its related dimensions reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals 1, 11 and 13. The Sendai Framework Monitor will also function as a management tool to help countries develop disaster risk reduction strategies, make risk-informed policy decisions and allocate resources to prevent new disaster risks. The Sendai Framework Monitor can contribute to the Target E of the Sendai Framework related to development of actionable national and local disaster risk reduction strategies by 2020.
