Stakeholder engagement

The Europe and Central Asia Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction 2024 aims to welcome a large diversity of DRR stakeholders across the region.

In line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, and the Regional EFDRR Roadmap 2021-2030, inclusive and participatory approaches to DRR are at the heart of the Europe and Central Asia Regional Platform 2024. Representatives of Major Groups and other Stakeholders (MGoS) in Europe and Central Asia have been engaged throughout the planning process for the Regional Platform to ensure that their voices are heard by policymakers.  

Joint Stakeholders' Position Paper for Policymakers

Representatives of Major Groups and other Stakeholders gathered at the Action-Oriented Dialogue on “Reducing Risk Together – Community Engagement in Disaster Risk Reduction”, hosted by the Ministry of Interior of Finland with UNDRR support, and developed a Joint Position Paper with 7 key actions for policymakers to consider for strengthening effective, inclusive, and resilient DRR policies across all levels and sectors ahead of the Regional Platform.

Youth Engagement

A study on Youth Engagement in Disaster Risk Reduction Processes and Decision-making in Europe and Central Asia, conducted by Youth DRR stakeholders, was also finalized in 2024, with specific recommendations for more inclusive approaches for engaging children and youth in DRR-related decision-making processes, activities and policies in the region. 

E-STAG contributions


The European Scientific and Technological Advisory Group (E-STAG) are also contributing to the implementation of the Regional DRR Roadmap and the Regional Platform 2024. E-STAG is a voluntary group of experts providing scientific and technical support to European and Central Asian countries on the implementation of the Sendai Framework - and other relevant frameworks in the EU in close collaboration with the European Commission's Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre (DRMKC). More information on their extensive support to DRR efforts in the region is available here.
