In Germany, disaster risk reduction is regulated by laws at the federal and state level. Disaster protection laws are in place in all 16 federal states. This means that disaster risk reduction laws are in effect for 100% of the municipalities in Germany.

The international organisations (custodian agencies) that are responsible for the respective SDG-indicator publish methodical explanations for the indicator - the so-called global metadata.

Here, national time series that fit the global metadata best as well as their comparability with the global metadata are presented. Please find further methodical and country-specific information in the related national metadata.
