Monitoring the Sendai Framework
Strong accountability is one of the corner stones of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. A set of 38 indicators, recommended by an Open-ended Intergovernmental Expert Working Group, will track progress in implementing the seven targets of the Sendai Framework as well as its related dimensions reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals 1, 11 and 13. The Sendai Framework Monitor will also function as a management tool to help countries develop disaster risk reduction strategies, make risk-informed policy decisions and allocate resources to prevent new disaster risks. The Sendai Framework Monitor can contribute to the Target E of the Sendai Framework related to development of actionable national and local disaster risk reduction strategies by 2020.
The monitoring process and timeline
Progress in implementing the Sendai Framework will be assessed biennially by UNISDR; analysis and trends will be presented in the Sendai Framework Progress Report (covering the period from January of the first year to December of the second year of the biennium).
As of March 2018, Member States have to report against the indicators for measuring the global targets of the Sendai Framework, and disaster risk-related indicators of the SDGs, using the online Sendai Framework Monitor. A detailed timeline has been developed and shared on the key milestones of the process, which will help Member States in their timely reporting.
