7th Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction
23 - 28 May 2022
Organized and convened by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and hosted by the Government of Indonesia, the Global Platform takes place at a critical time: seven years from the adoption of the Sendai Framework and just over two years since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, which exposed how underlying vulnerabilities and inequities have catastrophic consequences for the most exposed across the world.
The sessions will be organized around three main sub-themes: disaster risk governance, COVID-19 recovery, and disaster risk reduction financing; and three cross-cutting themes: Sendai Framework stocktaking, leave no one behind, and SDGs and climate action.
