Eighth Africa Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction

The Eighth Africa Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction will be held under the over-arching theme: Towards Disaster Risk-Informed Development for a Resilient Africa in a COVID-19 Transformed World. The meeting aims to build consensus on the way forward for Member States to deliver on their commitments to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and to the African Union’s Programme of Action for its implementation in Africa.

The meeting is being organized by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), in collaboration with the African Union Commission and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development. It will also include the Seventh High-Level Meeting on Disaster Risk Reduction where Ministers responsible for disaster risk reduction (DRR) and Member States’ Heads of Delegations will consider and adopt the outcomes of the Regional Platform.

The Africa Regional Platform takes place every two years and brings together Member States, regional economic communities, development partners and other DRR stakeholders to review progress, and share experiences, good practices and lessons learned on DRR at the regional level.

The events on 16-18 November will be held virtually, while the High-Level Meeting on 19 November will be in hybrid format in Nairobi, Kenya.
