The Europe and Central Asia Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction invites all stakeholders to submit applications for organizing thematic webinars by 15 August 2024. 

We are pleased to announce that there are available slots for organizing thematic webinars within the Europe & Central Asia Regional Platform for DRR. Interested organizers are invited to apply by 15 August 2024. 

These 1 hour and 15 minutes long webinars will be broadcasted to all registered participants of the Regional Platform and aim to contribute to the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 as well as to enhance the outcomes of the Regional Platform. These events provide a dynamic and interactive forum for stakeholders to share innovative ideas, good practices, and lessons learned in disaster risk reduction. By addressing specific priorities and topics of the Sendai Framework, webinars should help to advance understanding and implementation at local, national and regional levels, thereby strengthening overall resilience of communities. The insights and outcomes from these events feed directly into the Regional Platform's deliberations and final documents, ensuring that a diverse range of perspectives and solutions are considered in shaping effective disaster risk reduction strategies.
