Abstract

Ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction has gained attention to complement or replace grey infrastructure. The paper explores ways in which ecosystems and green infrastructure (GI) are critical infrastructure in the context of disaster risk reduction to report respective losses in the Sendai Framework Monitor (SFM). We argue that reporting on GI under indicators D-4 and C-5 in the SFM represent an opportunity for tracking losses, yet do not provide direct information on progress made in reducing risk. Custom targets and indicators according to countries' needs within the SFM might be a more practical opportunity to report on both losses and progress.
