9th EU Loss Data Workshop

20th -21st March 2017, Brussels, Belgium

These series of workshops aim at understanding the process and facilitating the exchange of experience and information regarding activities and actions undertaken to collect and share loss data. In particular, the work done so far to implement the indicators agreed under Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFWDRR). The main objectives of the Workshop were:

  • To discuss actions undertaken at both EU and National level for the implementation of the SFWDRR.
  • To identify and share good implementation activities among the experts.
  • To identify synergies and new opportunities for collaboration.
  • To develop a 18-months work programme for the Loss Data WG based on a gap analysis.
  • To report on the results obtained through the activation of the DRMKC Support Service.



  • Monday 20 March 2017

    • Session 1 - Sendai Framework update on indicators and their implementation

      Sendai Indicators have been agreed. During this session will be presented and discussed the global, EU and national relevant ongoing and foreseen activities (Platforms, Roadmap and Action Plans).

    • Session 2 - National implementation of Sendai Indicators: methods and tools for recording and sharing loss data

      The National implementation of the Sendai Indicators will have implications on existing national loss databases. The session aims to discuss how countries plan to implement National Loss Databases that comply with global Sendai Indicators, but also with other national requirements.

  • Tuesday 21 March 2017

    • Session 3 - Loss Data in the Risk Assessment process

      The value of disaster loss data goes beyond DRR policy monitoring. Loss data is key to inform risk assessment processes, policy making in disaster risk prevention urban and sustainable development policies. In this session will be discussed how an effective implementation of Sendai Indicators supports the Risk Assessment process.

    • Session 4 - Loss Data Recording: Building National Capabilities

      The webGIS-platform FloodCat has been developed by the Italian Civil Protection for reporting historical and potential future floods according to the EU Floods Directive. The FloodCat has been updated according to JRC guidelines on Recording Loss Data and the Indicators proposed in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The challenge in the implementation of customized versions of the FloodCat platform to other UCPM participant and/or Neighbouring Countries will be explored during the session.
