The Sendai Framework highlights the importance of sharing and reviewing experiences on the use of geographic and statistical information, integrated into information systems which are indispensable tools to reduce vulnerability and increase the resilience of countries and regions in the face of the different disaster risks. Geographical and statistical information, once aligned towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Agenda and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in a holistic way can be of great value to the whole society to better understand, raise awareness and react towards risk.
