The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) presents its compliments to the Permanent and Observer Missions to the United Nations in New York and Geneva and has the honour to share information pertaining to the monitoring and reporting on progress in implementing the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
The United Nations General Assembly endorsed on 2 February 2017 the recommendations of the Open-ended Intergovernmental Expert Working Group on indicators and terminology relating to disaster risk reduction (OIEWG) through the adoption of the A/71/644. Per this resolution, UNISDR was requested to undertake technical work and provide technical guidance to Member States.
In this regard, UNISDR will organize a technical workshop to launch the Sendai Framework Monitoring Process from 6 to 8 December 2017 in Bonn, Germany. Participants will learn about the Sendai Framework Monitor System, which will be available in early 2018, including its data entry, analytical capabilities as well as levels of application (global, regional, national, local), and also learn about the current work being developed by several countries as they get ready to report on the progress in implementing the Sendai Framework, and the work carried out by relevant international and regional organizations to support Member States.
The technical workshop is designed for nominated Sendai National Focal Points, senior staff of National Statistics Offices (NSOs), as well as other relevant senior-level national data custodians. All participants should register by 17 November 2017 by using the registration link contained in the attached announcement. Thanks to the support being provided by the Government of Germany, the organisers will be able to offer travel support to a limited number of participants from LDCs and SIDS. Please note that the final deadline for registration for the participants requesting funding support is 10 November 2017.
For any queries please contact Ms. Ritsuko Yamazaki-Honda ([email protected]).
The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction avails itself of this opportunity to renew to all Permanent Missions to the United Nations and other international organizations in Geneva the assurances of its highest consideration.
