Adhering to the outcomes of the first Arab Conference for DRR, held in Aqaba (Jordan) in March 2013, the 2nd Arab Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) will provide a forum for Arab governments, policy makers, planners, academia, civil society and development experts to discuss disaster risk reduction in the region.
