Global Platform 2019

Preparations for the 2019 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction have started!

This year's theme will be "Resilient Dividend: Towards Sustainable and Inclusive Societies”.

The focus will be on how managing disaster risk and risk-informed development investments pay dividends in multiple sectors and geographies, across all scales, and throughout social, economic, financial and environmental fields.

The concept of ‘resilience dividend’ in this context is interpreted in a broader sense that goes beyond monetary profit. It contributes to reducing disaster risk, fostering development and triggering multiple social, environmental and economic benefits in the long term.

Registrations are now open. 

For the first time, UNISDR and its stakeholder partners are organising a 2-day Stakeholders Summit which will be held during the Global Platform preparatory days from 13-14 May 2019.

The organisation of the Summit is still ongoing. GNDR has been involved with stakeholders in discussions around the purpose of the summit, its structure and expected outcomes.

  • Join the GP discussion group on the Community Platform to receive updates and contribute to the discussions!
