The 6th Africa Regional Platform is a biennial forum that brings together African Member States, intergovernmental organizations and development partners to review progress in the implementation of the continental and global disaster risk reduction frameworks. The Platform also enables the sharing of good practices and lessons learnt with a view to enhancing coordination, increasing awareness, and mobilizing commitments to disaster risk reduction across Africa. At the same time it will take place in Mauritius the 5th High Level Meeting of African Ministers responsible for disaster risk reduction. This meeting is responsible for agreeing and adopting the outcomes of the regional platform and Africa Working Group through a Declaration, which is later submitted to the African Union Summit for endorsement.
GNDR Regional Coordinator Adessou KOSSIVI and individual GNDR members will represent our network in this important meeting. One of the main aims is to present a set of important agreed recommendations from African Civil Society Organizations developed together with CONCERN Worldwide on driving action for disaster-affected communities.
