The Africa Regional Platform is a biennial forum that brings together African Member States, intergovernmental organizations and development partners to review progress in the implementation of the continental and global disaster risk reduction frameworks. The Platform also enables the sharing of good practices and lessons learnt with a view to enhancing coordination, increasing awareness, and mobilizing commitments to disaster risk reduction across Africa. Five sessions of Africa Regional Platform have been convened so far.

The High Level Meeting of African Ministers responsible for disaster risk reduction is responsible for agreeing and adopting the outcomes of the regional platform and Africa Working Group through a Declaration, which is later submitted to the African Union Summit for endorsement. Four sessions of the High Level Meeting have been convened so far.

To review progress made in the domestication and implementation of the Sendai Framework and discuss and agree on follow-up actions to accelerate implementation, the African Union Commission, with support from UNISDR, will organise the 6th Session of Africa Regional Platform and the 5th High-Level Meeting in November 2016. The Platform will be hosted by the Government of Mauritius, a Member State of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) with support from the SADC Secretariat.
