The Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction is a biennial multi-stakeholder forum established by the UN General Assembly to review progress, share knowledge and discuss the latest developments and trends in reducing disaster risk.

The sixth session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GP2019) will take place in Geneva, Switzerland from 13 to 17 May, 2019, convened and organized by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) and hosted by the Government of Switzerland.

The session will be co-chaired by Switzerland and UNISDR. It will represent the next important opportunity for the international community to boost the implementation of the Sendai Framework and related Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, as well as commitments of the Paris Climate Agreement.

It will be the last global gathering for all stakeholders before the deadline for the achievement of Target E of the Sendai Framework: Substantially increase the number of countries with national and local disaster risk reduction strategies by 2020.

The GP2019 will be organized under the overall theme entitled: Resilience Dividend: Towards Sustainable and Inclusive Societies. It will focus on how managing disaster risk and risk-informed development investments pay dividends in multiple sectors at all levels and throughout social, economic, financial and environmental fields.
