The Seventh Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction
The Seventh Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GP2022), organized by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and hosted by the Government of Indonesia, will take place from 23 to 28 May 2022 in Bali, Indonesia.
The Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction is recognized by the United Nations General Assembly as the forum to assess and discuss progress on the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and to advance concerted implementation of disaster risk reduction, sustainable development and climate change mitigation and adaptation. Embodying the all of society approach, the Global Platform is an inclusive and accessible multi-stakeholder platform and plays a crucial role in mobilizing - and fostering collaboration among - governments, stakeholders, and the UN system.
The overall theme, From Risk to Resilience: Towards Sustainable Development for All in a COVID-19 Transformed World, will focus on how the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged the traditional understanding of risk and disaster risk governance. It will explore how the global crisis can be turned into an opportunity for the necessary radical transformation needed to achieve the goal and targets of the Sendai Framework, as well as of the 2030 Agenda.
The #GP2022 agenda will be guided by the Sendai Framework goal, priorities for action and targets, the key priorities identified at the previous Global Platform held in Geneva, Switzerland in 2019 as well as those stemming from the 2021 European Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction.
