The Government of Turkmenistan started reporting on national progress in implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction using the online Sendai Framework Monitor (SFM). By quantitative and qualitative reporting through the Sendai Framework Monitor, Turkmenistan will be able to assess and track its progress in reducing disaster risks according to the SFM indicators. This information can be used to support regional and global analyses of Sendai implementation.
The Department for Civil Defense and Rescue Operations of the Ministry of Defense of Turkmenistan was assigned by the government of Turkmenistan as coordinators (Sendai Focal Point) of the SFM reporting process. UNDRR’s Central Asia Initiative “Strengthening disaster resilience and accelerating implementation of Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in Central Asia 2019-2022”, funded by the European Union supports the Sendai Focal Point through capacity-building trainings focused on SFM reporting process.
The capacity-building trainings are part of Result Area “Building the foundations for greater resilience in Central Asia through data, capacity, governance and cooperation at local, national and regional level”, which focuses on aligning collection of data, its analysis and reporting with the priorities of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, which also supports the reporting on implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Government of Turkmenistan prioritizes reducing the negative impact of natural and man-made hazards and shifts from management of disasters to management of risks. SFM reporting will contribute in making Turkmen communities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
