This publication provides an in-depth analysis of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) Progress Reports presented by countries to date as a first step towards the design of a new progress monitoring system. An analysis of progress has been presented in each of the biennial United Nations Global Assessment Reports on Disaster Risk Reduction (2009, 2011 and 2013), as well as in a stand-alone 2013 publication, the report Implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action - Summary of reports 2007-2013.
The present publication differs from those efforts in a number of ways. It analyses the majority of HFA Progress Reports from 2011 and 2013 in far greater depth and breadth than has previously been possible. At the same time, rather than focusing on progress per se, this analysis identifies the key challenges, issues and opportunities that countries face and that will have to be addressed in the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction. It also examines the suitability of the HFA Core Indicators to measure progress in disaster risk reduction and thus is a key input to the design of a new system of indicators for progress monitoring.
