Being risk-informed and resilient

Posted on 14 June 2022

The seventh Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR), a hybrid event that included more than 4,000 participants from almost all the countries of the world, was held mainly to take stock of the implementation of the Sendai Framework.
The 2022 GPDRR ended last Saturday in Bali, Indonesia “at a time when the world is recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic while facing the growing impacts of the climate emergency,” as the concluding co-chairs’ summary put it.
“This has been compounded by conflicts, including the war in Ukraine, which has disrupted global supply chains, led to inflation, and threatened food security, further deepening vulnerabilities of people living in the most disaster-prone parts of the world.”
