There is no translation available.

22nd-26th May 2017 | From Commitment to Action 

This webpage is the GNDR portal to the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction organised by UNISDR. In here you will find information about the event and the activities and participation of GNDR and its members. Use the links below to download key resources before, during and after the event.

What is the 2017 Global Platform?

The Global Platform is the main forum at the global level for strategic advice, coordination, partnership development and the review of progress in the implementation of international instruments on disaster risk reduction. It was established in 2006 and is now the world's foremost gathering of stakeholders committed to reducing disaster risk and building the resilience of communities and nations. The Global Platform holds biennial sessions. To date, there have been four, in 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013, all of them held in Geneva. The 2015 edition did not take place, given that that year saw the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, Japan, which included a significant and highly appreciated multi-stakeholder dimension.

Plans for the 2017 Global Platform

GNDR is hoping for a strong participation from the network and its members to the Global Platform to be held in Cancún, Mexico between the 22nd and 26th May. You can see the programme at the official website and use this page to register to attend this UNISDR event. GNDR and the Climate Action Network (CAN) have been designated by UNISDR as the focal points for NGOs. We will be providing information to help NGOs navigate the Global Platform in the run up to and during the conference. We will also be organising a preparatory meeting for all NGOs in Cancún, before the formal agenda starts.

GNDR at the 2017 Global Platform for DRR

GNDR is working with a range of networks globally to coordinate our messages and put together a joint advocacy initiative calling for more systematic collaboration between governments and civil society in the design of DRR strategies. We have applied for a marketplace booth that we hope will be a mini-world showcasing the fantastic work being undertaken by our members around the globe. We will be sharing the visual and interactive Frontline data and stories of local risk and resilience at a special pre-event on the 23rd May, as well as launching our plans to initiate a new Views from the Frontline 2017.

Coordinating joint advocacy initiative with other networks

GNDR is working with a range of networks globally to coordinate our messages and put together a joint advocacy initiative calling for more systematic collaboration between governments and civil society in the design of DRR strategies.

Marketplace booth (tbc)

We have applied for a booth/stand that we hope will be a mini-world showcasing the fantastic work being undertaken by our members around the globe. It is important that we have a physical place with space to demonstrate the contribution we as a sector are currently making and able to offer to the rest of the stakeholders, working together to ensure a more resilient world.

Frontline event

Title: Views from the Frontline: Local perspectives on risk and resilience.

The event will share the findings and practical lessons from our Frontline programme which over the last 2 years has been collecting data on local risk and resilience priorities. This has been collated into an open source platform which can be disaggregated by age, gender, community, education. We have been building the capacities of different stakeholders to use the findings for local action planning, resilience policy making, coalition building, and advocacy.

The event will end with a launch of our plans to initiate a new Views from the Frontline monitoring programme, which will aim to monitor how inclusive and people-centred the implementation of the post-2015 frameworks is, at the local and national levels. The event will outline the methodology and the ways people can engage.

10 Year Anniversary of GNDR activities

2017 is the tenth anniversary of the establishment of GNDR and we are currently thinking of different ways to mark this occasion with the members and partners who have been key to GNDR’s growth and impact. At the Global Platform for DRR this may include a small party, videos of members' work being displayed etc.

Acting as NGO focal point

GNDR and the Climate Action Network (CAN) have been designated by UNISDR as the focal points for NGOs. We will be providing information to help NGOs navigate the Global Platform in the run up to and during the conference, and disseminating this on an NGO email listserv. We will also be organising a preparatory meeting for all NGOs in Cancun before the formal agenda starts (this will either be on the 22nd or the 23rd).

We will keep providing you with further updates on how you can engage in these various activities up to the start of the event, so you can keep updated, even if you are not planning to attend the Global Platform in person.
