Making Disaster Risk Reduction and Recovery Inclusive for All

New York – Government representatives, development practitioners and humanitarian actors from around the world will meet in Geneva next week at the Sixth Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (May 13-17) to take stock of the progress towards achieving the targets outlined by the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, with inclusion as one of the central themes.

Embedded within the week-long event, the Fourth World Reconstruction Conference (May 13-14) co-organised by UNDP and the World Bank, with support from the European Union will focus on inclusive recovery that is accessible to all groups of society— a key prerequisite for successful recovery processes that are sustainable and build long-term resilience.

Eddie Ndopu, UN Secretary-General’s SDG Advocate and one of the world’s pre-eminent disability justice activists will speak at the opening session of the World Reconstruction Conference and share his insights on the challenges and possible solutions for making DRR and recovery accessible for all.
