Global Summit for Disaster Risk Reduction 2024

20-22 February 2024 | Nairobi, Kenya

Hosted by GNDR, the international event will bring together sector leaders and innovators, predominantly from the Global South, who work in disaster risk reduction and resilience building.

Learn, share and collaborate 

The three-day event is a unique opportunity for professionals to network, learn about the latest challenges and solutions in risk reduction, and build new partnerships for localisation.

GNDR members, civil society organisations, funders, DRR experts, academics, businesses and representatives from communities most at risk of disasters will attend.

Anticipatory action, climate change and DRR

Participants will learn about new and emerging issues in anticipatory action, climate change adaptation and DRR.

Collaborative sessions will identify innovative solutions to localisation, and organisations from across the sector will be able to create new partnerships for action and advocacy. 

The role of communities and civil society in shaping national and international policy will be at the forefront of the conversation.
