What is the GNDR Global Summit?

Every 2 or 3 years GNDR members and partners gather to discuss future plans. The last one was in March 2013 in The Hague, Netherlands. Our 2016 Global Summit will bring together GNDR members, our Global Board, the Secretariat, as well as other partners to celebrate our new strategy, build relationships, share ideas, reach a mutual understanding of our future direction, and identify opportunities for collaboration that will improve local resilience.
