The COVID-19 pandemic is a timely reminder of how hazards within the
complex and changing global risk landscape can affect lives, livelihoods
and health.

The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 (‘the Sendai
Framework’) was one of three landmark agreements adopted by the United
Nations in 2015. The other two being the Sustainable Development Goals of
Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The UNDRR/ISC Sendai
Hazard Definition and Classification Review Technical Report supports all
three by providing a common set of hazard definitions for monitoring and
reviewing implementation which calls for “a data revolution, rigorous
accountability mechanisms and renewed global partnerships” The UNDRR/ISC
Hazard Information Profile Supplement will be available soon.

An outcome of this work is collaboration to develop disaster related
statistics. The First meeting of the Inter-Agency and Expert Group (IAEG)
on Disaster-related Statistics
held in May 2021. The IAEG-DRS is the outcome of the UNECOSOC Report of the
Core Group of the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on Disaster-related
in December 2020 and adopted in March 2021.  The IAEG comprises
approximately 180 members, representing about 90 countries and 15
international organizations. The IAEG is Co-Chaired by UNDRR and UNESCAP.
The  First Expert Forum for Producers and Users of Disaster-related
 in June 2021*. *As an introduction to this forum – it related to the
importance of setting up mechanisms to ensure collaboration and
coordination of work on disaster-related statistics across disciplines and
organizations has been recognized on national and international level,
including the United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC) and the
Conference of European Statisticians (CES).

This session will invite colleagues to engage in this work via the pilots
that are being developed.
