In March 2015, Germany committed itself to implementing the United Nations (UN) Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. The national focal point for the Sendai Framework is the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK).

On July 13, 2022, the Federal Government adopted the German Strategy to Strengthen Resilience to Disasters (or “Resilience Strategy” for short) with the aim of better protecting people and their livelihoods and strengthening the community’s resilience and adaptability to disasters.

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.

This tab provides relevant information on the SDG indicators - such as the political target, the primary responsible organisation (custodian agency) and a link to the global metadata. The global metadata is provided by the United Nations Statistics Division.
