Disaster-related statistics: Strengthening data ecosystems for enhanced risk governance

The growing impact of disasters, associated preventive, preparedness and response measures, and the COP27 decision on establishing a Loss and Damage fund, have all necessitated strengthening of the data ecosystem that underscores decision-making. Mandated by the UN Statistical Commission, the Inter-Agency Expert Group on Disaster-related Statistics (IAEG-DRS) is developing recommendations for a common disaster-related statistical framework for the Commission’s consideration in 2024. The framework will enhance rigour in statistical methods, define parameters for internationally comparable data, and help bridge the gap between national statistical offices (NSOs) and national disaster management offices (NDMOs). The proposed side event will feature governments (especially NSOs and NDMOs) and expert organizations from across the world to share their enriching experience and initiatives on disaster-related statistics. Challenges and good practices will be shared, building on the previous IAEG-DRS meetings and Expert Forums on Producers and Users of Disaster-related statistics.
