Open-ended Intergovernmental Expert Working Group on Indicators and Terminology (OIEWG)

As indicated in paragraph 50 of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the WCDRR conference recommended that the UN General Assembly establish an open-ended intergovernmental expert working group, comprised of experts nominated by States, and supported by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), with involvement of relevant stakeholders, for the development of a set of possible indicators and terminology to measure global progress in the implementation of Sendai Framework in coherence with the work of the inter-agency and expert group on sustainable development indicators.

The Working Group was established by the United Nations General Assembly via resolution 69/284 adopted on 3 June 2015.
