European Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction
The 2017 EFDRR Open Forum will be hosted by the Government of Turkey from 26-28 March 2017 in Istanbul, Turkey. As a requirement of the Sendai Framework, one of the intended outcomes of the 2017 EFDRR Open Forum in Turkey will be to prepare to share experiences, lessons learnt, and gap analyses for the 2017 Global Platform (22-26 May 2017, Cancun, Mexico). The 2017 EFDRR Open Forum will be a unique opportunity to shape the implementation and monitoring of the Sendai Framework in Europe.
The objectives of the 2017 EFDRR Open Forum are as follows:
- Transforming the commitment of governments and stakeholders made in Sendai during the WCDRR into national and local action.
- Setting the direction to accelerate regional implementation and monitoring of the Sendai Framework.
