For the first time ever, Africa and Arab States will come together to participate in the Africa-Arab Platform on Disaster Risk Reduction. The forum will be hosted by the Republic of Tunisia in cooperation with the African Union Commission (AUC), the League of Arab States (LAS) and the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) from 9 – 13 October 2018 in Tunis, Tunisia.

The objectives of the Africa-Arab Platform on DRR are to take stock of progress made in the implementation of the Sendai Framework and to reaffirm political commitment to achieving its implementation and thereby contribute to the realization of Agenda 2063: The Africa We Want and Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. The outcome of the two events will also form the basis of the two regions Common Positions at the 2019 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction.

The Africa-Arab Regional Platform on disaster risk reduction will also provide the regions with opportunities to share knowledge, experiences and best practices in advancing disaster risk reduction in the context of the Sendai Framework.

The 7th session of Africa Regional Platform and 6th High Level Meeting, will be convened as part of the “Building Disaster Resilience to Natural Hazards in Sub-Saharan African Regions, Countries and Communities Programme”, funded by the European Union (EU) and being implemented in Africa as part of a cooperation between the European Union (EU) and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP).
