280. There is a growing demand for hazardous events and disaster related statistics to respond to international policy frameworks and for all stages of disaster risk management (risk assessment, prevention and mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery). This chapter introduces the Task Force’s recommendations to NSOs for measuring hazardous events and disasters. Though targeted primarily at NSOs their implementation will concern other users and producers of HED-related statistics, both inside and outside the statistical system. The recommendations also call for further work at international level to promote the involvement of official statistics in measuring hazardous events and disasters.
