What is the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction?
The Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction is the most important international forum dedicated to the disaster risk reduction agenda. The 2017 event will be the first time it has been staged outside of Geneva. The Global Forum takes place every two years, and its fifth session will be held in Cancun, Mexico from 22-26 May 2017.
The Global Platform will mark the first opportunity for the international community to review global progress on the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, which was adopted in Japan in March 2015. More than 5,000 multistakeholder participants are expected.
