Disaster-related Statistics Framework (DRSF)

DRSF Case Studies and Working Papers

DRSF  is a guideline for statistics, which includes descriptions for a basic range of disaster-related statistics and methodological guidance and tools for implementation. DRSF is designed for use by national agencies to improve quality and harmonization of statistics in support of monitoring and achievement of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.  This Handbook is the result of multiple rounds of online consultations and other activities of the Asia-Pacific Expert group.
