Sendai Framework

Sendai Framework Monitoring Process

Progress in implementing the Sendai Framework will be assessed biennially by UNISDR; analysis and trends will be presented in the Sendai Framework Progress Report (covering the period from January of the first year to December of the second year of the biennium).

As of March 2018, countries will be able to report against the indicators for measuring the global targets of the Sendai Framework and disaster risk reduction-related indicators of the SDGs, using the online Sendai Framework Monitoring System.

The Sustainable Development Goals Report is submitted every year to the High-level Political Forum (HLFP), drawing on data collected and reported by country on an annual basis. The first Sendai Framework Progress Report is expected in 2019 and will exceptionally cover trends in implementation for the two biennial cycles 2015-2016 and 2017-2018. In 2019, reporting on progress in achieving the SDG targets related to disaster risk reduction and in implementing the Sendai Framework, will be shared at the High-level Political Forum and Sixth Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction respectively.
