The importance of setting up mechanisms to ensure collaboration and coordination of work on disaster-related statistics across disciplines and organizations has been recognized on national and international level, including the United Nations Statistical Commission (UNSC) and the Conference of European Statisticians (CES).

The first Expert Forum for Producers and Users of Disaster-related Statistics took place as an online meeting on 7, 8 and 10 June 2021.  To accommodate different time zones, two similar meetings per day were organized, and some presentations were pre-recorded.
