This report seeks to measure progress in the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) implementation in the Asia-Pacific region by synthesizing the review process and outcomes of the HFA national progress reports submitted by 36 countries during the review period from May 2011 to March 2013. It includes: (i) an executive summary capturing the progress and key trends in the implementation of HFA in the Asia Pacific; (ii) the disaster context in Asia Pacific and an introduction to the HFA and the monitoring and review process; (iii) the analysis on the progress achieved at the national level; (iv) progress achieved at the sub-regional levels based on the reports provided by the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN), the South-Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community - South Pacific Applied Geo-Science Commission (SPC SOPAC); (v) summary of views expressed in terms of the drivers of progress; and (vi) the future outlook and the recommendations based on the synthesized analysis.
