About the conference

In lieu and on the occasion of the 50-year anniversary of the devastating Florence floods, the Government of Italy and the City of Florence in partnership with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) and United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) are organizing a High Level Forum gathering Ministers, Mayors, policymakers, local government authorities, private sector, experts and partners from across the world with interests and engagement in local and urban resilience and disaster risk reduction.

The high level forum will:

  • Highlight the importance of disaster risk reduction at the core of the sustainable development and climate change agendas.
  • Provide inputs towards the preparations of Habitat III Conference (Quito, 2016), The Climate Change COP22 (Marrakesh, 2016), and the Fifth Global Platform on DRR (Cancun, 2017).
  • Promote coherence in local level implementation of the post-2015 international agreements (i.e. the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Sustainable Development Goals –SDGs, and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change)
