About This Course

In March 2018, the Sendai Framework Monitor was launched by United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) as the official tool to report on global and national implementation progress of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (SFDRR), as well as related targets of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This course from UNDRR and Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) aims to train government officials and relevant stakeholders involved in reporting national progress using the online Sendai Framework Monitor. The course is comprised of video lectures, online Monitor tutorials, discussion boards, and short assessments.
