About the Pacific Platform
UNISDR co-convenes the Pacific Platform for Disaster Risk Management (Pacific Platform) jointly with the SOPAC Division of SPC. The Pacific Platform was established in 2008 to harmonize existing regional mechanisms for disaster risk management in the Pacific. The regional platform has been central to the development and/or implementation of regional policies and frameworks for action on disaster risk management in the Pacific providing an opportunity for the sharing of experiences and knowledge in relation to initiatives that are being implemented by Pacific island countries and territories to strengthen resilience to disasters.
