Extreme events and disasters

We develop the role of official statistics in the measurement of extreme events and disasters in the UNECE region. Work in this area includes regional activities to:

  • Harmonize concepts and definitions
  • Improve official statistics for this purpose
  • Build collaboration between official statisticians and disaster risk agencies

The work contributes to SDG monitoring in several areas, especially on SDGs 11 and 13.
