UNISDR 2018 Technical Forum: Leveraging on the Sendai Framework Monitoring process in support of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement
An important component of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030) is the inclusive and comprehensive monitoring and reporting process which allows countries, as well as regional organizations and local Governments, to monitor global progress in reaching the agreed seven targets as well as to monitor progress in the implementation of national, local and regional risk reduction strategies and plans. This reporting is supported by the Sendai Framework Monitor developed and managed by UNISDR.
The Sendai Framework Monitoring Process was launched at a technical workshop held in Bonn in December 2017. This 2018 Technical Forum will provide an opportunity to review the significant progress made so far in the monitoring and reporting of the implementation of the Sendai Framework, with a special attention to Target E (Substantially increase the number of countries with national and local disaster risk reduction strategies by 2020) and also on the coherence of actions with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as well as the Paris Agreement. This review will be the basis for highlighting the strengths and shortcomings of the SFM Process and help identify actions that could further strengthen the monitoring of the implementation of the Sendai Framework at the national as well as regional and local levels.
