UNEP is member of the Integrated Monitoring Initiative (IMI) for SDG 6. The initiative brings together the eight UN organizations that are formally mandated to compile country data on the SDG 6 global indicators. The initiative supports countries in monitoring water and sanitation related issues within the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and in compiling country data to report on global progress towards SDG 6.

The United Nations General Assembly tasked UNISDR in the Sendai Framework with advocating and promoting integration, coherence and synergies across the 2030 Agenda, notably on reducing multi-hazard disaster risk, and with developing a new monitoring system for the Sendai Framework, linked with the monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs 1, 11 and 13) through, for instance, the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. As from 2018, countries are able to report against the Sendai Framework and disaster risk reduction related SDGs targets using the online Sendai Framework Monitor tool developed by UNISDR. Based on the self-assessment reports submitted by countries and regional organizations through the Sendai Monitor, UNISDR will present biannually the “Sendai Framework Progress Report”, which will measure the progress made against the global targets of the Sendai Framework and the relevant targets of the SDGs.
This report will be presented in 2019 as part of the Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR). A biennial global assessment of disaster risk reduction and a comprehensive review and analysis of the natural hazards that are affecting humanity. The GAR monitores risk patterns and trends and progress in disaster risk reduction while providing strategic policy guidance to countries and the international community, contributing to the implementation of risk-informed development.
