Launch of the 2024 Asia Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (APMCDRR)

Organizer(s) United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction


9:00 am


This event coincides with the celebration of the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction (IDDRR) and will serve as a key preparatory event for the 2024 APMCDRR to be hosted by the Philippines next year. 

The APMCDRR is convened by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) and is the primary regional platform which brings together global leaders to identify impactful and innovative solutions to disaster risk and promote coordination and cooperation on the implementation of the Sendai Framework in Asia and the Pacific. 

The biennial conference will be hosted by the Philippines on 14-17 October 2024 and this presents a unique opportunity for the country to exhibit our role in the region as a leader in public-private partnerships for climate and disaster resilience, the application of science and technology and nature-based solutions, and the promotion of resilient investments and infrastructure.
