UNISDR normative support contributes to the implementation of different water-related SDGs, including SDG 6,11, 13 and 15.
One of the main products of UNISDR work that gives key normative support is the “Sendai Framework Progress Report”, which from 2019 will be presented biannually measuring the progress made against the global targets of the Sendai Framework and the relevant targets of the SDGs (targets of SDGs 1, 11 and 13). The Sendai Framework monitoring will allow Member States to have access to national trends in the reduction of risk and losses of disasters.
UNISDR also provides normative support through the Words into Action (WiA), which are thematic guides for the implementation of the Sendai Framework and the integration of disaster risk management in specific areas. The overall objective of the WiA guides is to help engage the DRR community by facilitating access to concise and practical information that is readily accessible for global, local and in-the-field use. Following editions will support the implementation of SDGs 6, 11, 13 and 15, including an edition on "Water related disasters and transboundary cooperation".
