Launch of Sendai Framework Monitoring Process
The United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) with the support of the Government of Germany is organizing a technical workshop to launch the Sendai Framework Monitoring Process from 6 to 8 December 2017 in Bonn, Germany.
The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 is the first major agreement of the post-2015 development agenda. It was adopted by UN Member States in March 2015 at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Japan. The agreement is voluntary and non-binding, and it recognizes that the State has the primary role to reduce disaster risk but that responsibility should be shared with other stakeholders including local government, the private sector and other stakeholders.
The ongoing workshop is attended by nominated Sendai National Focal Points, senior staff of National Statistics Offices (NSOs), as well as other relevant senior-level national data custodians, who will learn about the Sendai Framework Monitoring System, which will be available early 2018. This will include sessions on the framework’s data entry, analytical capabilities as well as levels of application (global, regional, national, local). Participants will also share 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.
