Asia Regional Plan for Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030
This regional plan is one of the main outcome documents of the Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (AMCDRR) in November 2016 in New Delhi, India. It seeks to guide and support the national implementation of the Sendai Framework but is not a replacement of national plans. It does so by identifying priorities and regional activities to support national and local actions, enhance the exchange of good practices, knowledge and information among governments and stakeholders, in addition to strengthening regional cooperation to support the implementation of the Sendai Framework.
Global Assessment Report 2019
The 2019 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR) is informed by the latest data – including Sendai Framework target reporting by countries using the Sendai Framework Monitor – and infers early lessons on the state of the global disaster risk landscape. While the observed period is still too short to reach definitive conclusions at a global scale, it is possible to ascertain certain patterns in terms of magnitude, geographic and socioeconomic distribution of impacts and abstract several points of departure for where and how countries have seen successes in reducing risk.
To tackle climate change and its negative impacts, 197 countries adopted the Paris Agreement at the COP21 in Paris on 12 December 2015. The agreement includes commitments from all countries to reduce their emissions and work together to adapt to the impacts of climate change and calls on countries to strengthen their commitments over time. The Agreement provides a pathway for developed nations to assist developing nations in their climate mitigation and adaptation efforts while creating a framework for the transparent monitoring and reporting of countries’ climate goals.
Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 outlines seven clear targets and four priorities for action to prevent new and reduce existing disaster risks. It aims to achieve the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries over the next 15 years.
Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. The SDGs are designed to bring the world to several life-changing ‘zeros’, including zero poverty, hunger, AIDS and discrimination against women and girls.

This report presents recommended indicators to monitor the global targets of the Sendai Framework, the follow-up to and operationalization of the indicators terminology relating to disaster risk reduction.
UNDRR Technical Guide for Monitoring Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
The document provides technical suggestions and considerations of Member States, relevant technical partners and the UNISDR in respect of applicable definitions and terminology, possible computation methodologies, data standards and critical issues. The purpose of this document is to support the refinement and finalization of the technical guidance for countries reporting on the indicators to monitor achievement of the global targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
