UNISDR Announcement, 9 May 2016:

Dear partners,

As part of its commitment to ensuring extensive and inclusive multi-stakeholder consultations in the preparations of the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (22-26 May 2017, Cancún, México),  the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction is pleased to invite interested stakeholders to join an Online Dialogue on “Substantive Issues for the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction – Fifth Session” that will be running from 16 May to 5 June 2016. The registration process for the dialogue will start 9 May 2016.

The Online Dialogue is a unique opportunity given to the disaster risk reduction community to influence the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction discussions and outcomes. A set of questions is proposed to guide the online dialogue discussion and help identify critical elements and aspects of the Sendai Framework that require urgent attention, action and guidance in order to meet its priorities and global targets by 2020 and up to 2030.

The online dialogue will be conducted in English via email and will be moderated by Mr. Jerry Velasquez, Chief, Advocacy and Stakeholders Coordination Section at UNISDR.
