Fifth Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in the Americas
The Fifth Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in the Americas is the space that brings together key players from North, South, Central America and the Caribbean, involved in disaster risk reduction and resilience building.
This is a multisectoral and broadly participatory forum that reflects the commitment and concern of the (national, subnational and local) governments, intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), international organizations (IOs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), community organizations, scientific and academic institutions, private sector, donors and the media.
The main focus of the Fifth Regional Platform for DRR in the Americas will be to discuss how governments, ministers, civil society leaders, technical and scientific institutions, private sector, media could drive the implementation and measurement of the expected outcomes of the Sendai Framework in the Americas. More than 1,000 delegates are expected, including policy makers, practitioners, experts and disaster risk managers.
