Setting, measuring and monitoring targets for disaster risk reduction: recommendations for post-2015 international policy frameworks

Source(s):  Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED)
Overseas Development Institute (ODI)
Risk Management Solutions (RMS)

Prepared by ODI, RMS and CRED, the report provides 10 recommendations for establishing a common and comprehensive measurement and monitoring system for DRR progress to bridge post-2015 agreements. These recommendations include a focus on headline international targets focused on reducing disaster losses, as well as a national system of tracking progress in DRR based on using scenarios and hazard maps to assess progress in reducing the risk of losses. This is crucial, because major disaster events themselves are too infrequent to measure trends in disaster losses on a national basis over a decade or two.

The report also recommends specific numerical global targets for reducing disaster losses based on piecing together all available evidence.

An Executive Summary is available in English, Spanish and French.
