Our biennial event will take place on 6-22 October. This year’s digital event offers exceptional opportunities for knowledge sharing, capacity strengthening and making new connections. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year the Summit will take place entirely online.
Over three weeks in October you’ll be able to join numerous sessions on emerging topics such as eco-DRR, what Covid-19 means for risk-informed development, anticipatory fundraising, connecting donors to local civil society organisations, tools to reduce disaster risk in conflict settings, and many more themes related to the objectives of our new five-year strategy Local Leadership for Global Impact.
Registration is free and open to all. You only need to register once and then you can attend as many of the 25 sessions as you choose.
The event will bring together GNDR members (including the Global Board), government representatives, donors and private sector stakeholders to build relationships and identify opportunities for collaboration to enhance local resilience.
Many of the sessions will be multilingual, offering the chance to listen and participate in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.
There will also be several professional training opportunities offered related to areas that members have identified as priorities for capacity building. These include how to develop strong proposals and how to collaborate with parliamentarians to design policies more effectively.
The Global Summit a great opportunity for GNDR members and others from around the world to come together to create partnerships, start a localisation movement, and to build capacities to ensure development is risk-informed.
