Stakeholder briefing on the summit of the future

Organizer(s) United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction


14:30 - 15:30 (GMT+1)


The Summit of the Future is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to enhance cooperation on critical challenges and address gaps in global governance, reaffirm existing commitments including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the United Nations Charter, and move towards a reinvigorated multilateral system that is better positioned to positively impact people’s lives. 

The proposal for a Summit of the Future originated in the Our Common Agenda report. The report was a response by the UN Secretary-General to a call from Member States for ideas on how better to respond to current and future challenges. 

The aim of the Summit is twofold: accelerate efforts to meet our existing international commitments and take concrete steps to respond to emerging challenges and opportunities.

This will be achieved through an action-oriented outcome document called the Pact for the Future. The Pact will be negotiated, and endorsed by countries in the lead-up to and during the Summit in September 2024. The President of the General Assembly has appointed Germany and Namibia as co-facilitators of the intergovernmental preparatory process of the Summit of the Future. 

In keeping with the vision of a more networked and inclusive multilateralism enshrined in Our Common Agenda, the Secretary-General has underscored the importance of engaging diverse stakeholders from across the full spectrum of society.  

This webinar will provide a briefing for stakeholders about the Summit of the future and means to engage, as well as the UNDRR expectations and engagement, with the objective of generating synergies to enhance the impact.
