6th Arab Platform for DRR

Regional platforms and conferences in the region started during the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015: Apart from the technical discussions, the platforms provided a unique opportunity for governments and stakeholders to reaffirm commitment to reducing disaster losses through the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA). The platforms serve as a forum to exchange experiences on successful DRR practices and innovative approaches.

To ensure the effective implementation of Sendai Framework and Arab Strategy for DRR, UNDRR Regional Office for Arab States has been convening Arab Platforms on DRR, which have been providing a multi-stakeholder forum that brings together Arab Member States, intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, academia, women, youth, civil society, UN organizations, and other stakeholders. These platforms aim to review, develop, and align the implementation of the Arab DRR Strategy and the Prioritized Action Plans to reduce risk and build the resilience of communities and nations to natural and man-made hazards. Furthermore, they aim to enhance disaster risk reduction efforts through the exchange of experiences and better communication and coordination. These platforms provide a unique opportunity for governments to reaffirm their political commitment to implement the Sendai Framework.

Arab Regional Platforms include those held in Aqaba, Jordan, Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, Doha, Qatar, and Tunis, Tunisia focused on issues related to the local level implementation of the HFA, shaping the Sendai Framework, updating the Arab strategy and Programme of work with prioritized actions for the first 2 years.

The next Regional Platform, will be hosted by the Government of Kuwait from 28-31 October 2024.
