Developing indicators for measuring progress of disaster risk reduction

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

This publication discusses the importance of indicators as tools for monitoring and evaluating purposes and especially for the process of disaster risk reduction. Indicators provide useful ready reckoners to monitor the levels progress achieved for a set of activities or sub-activities, identify the strong and weak areas and facilitate mid-course corrections,
if necessary, for achieving the objectives. The author suggests a methodology through which countries may be able to record and submit their progress on reducing disaster risk. This is explained in detail in pages 19 to 20.

This document is an input paper of the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction.
