Assessing health impacts and changes in capacities in health and other sectors is important to monitoring and reporting progress in implementing health emergency and disaster risk management, the Sendai Framework, SDGs, International Health Regulations and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

The Guidance Notes comprise an overview and specific guidance notes for each of the seven Sendai Framework targets, to help operationalize, simplify and standardize the collection and reporting of data through the application of common language and methods. They provide information on the key issues to take into account in the collection of health data and the types of data that should be collated, and potential stakeholders to engage with. They adapt and complement the UNDRR/UNISDR Technical guidance for monitoring and reporting on progress in achieving the global targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, which has a multisectoral target audience.
