Mission Profile: 

In 2019, UN-SPIDER and the Disaster Management Centre of Sri Lanka developed a geospatial dashboard that identifies indicators of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030 that can be supported by Earth observation data and compiles key data sources available in the public domain and within government agencies in Sri Lanka. 

35. In 2020, UN-SPIDER offered the Centre the services of a national consultant for five months. The consultant has been working with the Centre and the International Water Management Institute, a regional support office based in Sri Lanka. This collaboration is expected to lead to the creation of data content in the geospatial dashboard and facilitate the monitoring of Sendai Framework targets.
