Uniting Nations, People and Action for Resilience

Apr 2015

The special event will address some of the challenges for the UN System, in its engagement with countries and partners, to achieve the goals and priorities set out in the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will outline the commitments of the UN System to support countries and communities to implement the outcomes of the conference.

The panellists, consisting in UN Executive Heads, will provide examples of what has worked and what can be done to address the bigger challenges: How to transform the development processes through which risk is created? How to focus on the people and assets that are subject to losses? How to deal with existing risk? How to work better as one UN?
