Review of the Sendai Framework Monitor and Sustainable Development Goals indicators for inclusion in the INFORM Global Risk Index

Source(s):  European Commission (EC)

The objective of the present study is to review opportunities for the improvement of the multi-hazard risk assessment Index for Risk Management (INFORM) Global Risk Index (GRI) with new indicators produced by the monitoring system of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The implementation of both the agendas requires a solid framework of indicators to monitor the progress made on reducing disaster risk — Sendai Framework Monitor (SFM) — and achieving sustainable development — the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The two monitoring frameworks will provide a unique set of reliable, consistent and comparable indicators required to understand the disaster risk reduction drivers and underlying risk factors linked to the sustainable development sought for. This creates a unique opportunity for enhancing the quality and the coverage of the underlying indicators used in the INFORM GRI while offering the possibility of cross-checking the results of these monitoring programmes with the assessment of the risk levels for humanitarian crisis calculated by the INFORM GRI.

This report describes the process towards the identification of the indicators from the SFM and SDGs that can be potentially included in the next releases of the INFORM GRI model in order to improve the quality of the assessment.

Many data gaps remain, especially on the SFM reporting, making the integration of most of the indicators diluted in time, and in some cases uncertain. Only seven indicators were considered ready to be included in the next release of the INFORM GRI, with a minimal influence on the model’s results.

On the other hand, once available, the new indicators will help to fill some of the identified gaps due to data unavailability of the current INFORM GRI model. In particular, the SFM indicators will provide an essential contribution to assessing the capacity of countries towards risk reduction.
