Sendai Framework Monitor data now publicly available

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR)

For the first time since the adoption of the Sendai Framework, data reported by Member States against the global plan to reduce disaster risk and losses is now publicly available. The new “Analytics” module offers access to data provided and validated by Member States, documenting progress against the seven global targets and 38 indicators of the Sendai Framework and its related sustainable development dimensions.

The indicators include data on disaster losses, disaster risk reduction strategies, international cooperation, multi-hazard early warning systems, and risk information. Data can be filtered by target, indicator, year and/or region and compared across time and space.

The release of the “Analytics” module is the third phase of development of the Sendai Framework Monitoring system. Launched on 1 March 2018, the first phase gave Member States access to the data entry module of “Global Targets and Indicators”, marking the beginning of their reporting. In a second phase in July last year, UNISDR expanded the monitoring platform to introduce “Custom Targets and Indicators”. With targets and indicators customized for their national and local context, Member States can develop a monitoring framework to support their respective national strategies for disaster risk reduction.

“Good accounting of your disaster losses is part of good governance,” stressed Ms. Mami Mizutori, Head of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction. “You cannot manage your disaster risk if you are not measuring your losses.” The Sendai Framework Monitor is also a management tool to help countries develop disaster risk reduction strategies, make risk-informed policy decisions and allocate resources to prevent new disaster risks.

As the world is moving from managing disasters to managing disaster risk, the launch of the analytics module will provide the global community with key insights on disaster losses and impacts, and efforts undertaken by Member States to curb disaster risk.
