VIII Session of the

Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction

in the Americas and the Caribbean 

 

The VIII Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in the Americas and the Caribbean will be held in Punta del Este, Uruguay, from February 28 to March 2, 2023. The VIII Regional Platform represents an opportunity for governments, intergovernmental bodies, private sector, civil society, scientific-technological communities, youth, cooperation agencies and donors, as well as other relevant stakeholders in the Americas and the Caribbean, to exchange experiences and facilitate decisions on the Regional Action Plan (RAP) for the implementation of the Sendai Framework in the Americas and the Caribbean, agreed in March 2017 in Montreal, Canada, and revised under the auspice of the Government of Jamaica in November 2021.

Uruguay has proposed a relevant space during RP23 to the topics of science, technology, and Early Warning Systems (Target G of the Sendai Framework), under the slogan "Science and Technology for the Comprehensive Management of Disaster Risk". It is considered necessary to focus on scientific and technological support as a fundamental tool for comprehensive management of disaster risk, particularly regarding its feasibility, development, financing and implementation.

The VIII Regional Platform will be developed in hybrid mode, as it will be conducted in person, but also enabling the necessary access for virtual participation in key spaces.
