Media Info

United Nations press badges or Global Platform conference badges are essential for journalists to gain access to the premises. Only one badge is needed to cover participation in all Global Platform sessions throughout the duration of the conference. The United Nations Press Corps will be allowed in automatically on presentation of their United Nations press badge. Representatives of national and international media who are not part of the United Nations Press Corps can apply for registration as a member of the delegation 'Global Media Network for Disaster Risk Reduction'.

Announcing press conferences

Participants are responsible for creating their own media lists and informing the news media of their press conferences. Scheduled press conferences will be posted on this page.

Press conference rooms on the conference premises are usually equipped with presentation equipment, including a beamer and laptop to upload presentations from a USB stick. Please advise at the time of booking whether you will be making a presentation during your press conference.

UNISDR staff will be pleased to make media advisories and other materials available to accredited press in the Media Centre. Please contact the UNISDR communications team to facilitate distribution.
