National disaster loss databases are crucial to producing and acting upon
risk information that, in turn, advances appropriate policy making and risk
governance. They also serve as basic mechanisms for reporting on the Sendai
Framework targets. Data collection is pivotal to the
comprehensive assessment of disaster impacts. Risk interpretation, with
standardized loss data, can also provide loss forecasting data in
referencing historical loss modelling.

This white paper describes standard framework and protocols for loss data
collection systems that offer enhanced and accurate risk assessments.  The
paper also discusses identification of indicators in disaster loss
estimation, outlining standards, and designing data collection and
assessment procedures.
