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 methodological guidelines for the calculation of the indicator - so-called global metadata.

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