Since 2016, the European Commission monitors progress towards the Sendai Framework on the basis of the «Action Plan on the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2016-2020)». This plan recognises actions from various policy areas, such as civil protection, humanitarian aid, climate, development, research, health and many other areas in which the European Union supports its Member States.

The EU is active in four main fields to reduce disaster risks inside and outside the EU. In civil protection, national disaster risk management systems are being strengthened to prevent, prepare for and respond to disasters. In humanitarian and development aid, the EU works with developing countries to help societies and vulnerable communities develop resilience to crises and shocks. Research and science provide a sound basis on which disaster risk management and funding decisions are made. In addition, the Commission is working on policies to mobilise private and public finance towards climate and sustainable objectives, including disaster risk reduction through the Sustainable Finance Action Plan.
