Human Initiative Participates in GPDRR 2022 histed by Indonesia

25 May 2022

Bali, Indonesia – For the first time in history, Indonesia hosted the 7th Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR) Forum. The theme for the 2022 GPDRR is From Risk to Resilience: Towards Sustainable Development for All in a COVID-19 Transformed World. This forum is an official event of the United Nations which is held every 2 years. However, due to the pandemic, the event is not held for 3 years.

This forum will take place in Bali, Indonesia, on 23-28 May 2022. Previously, Switzerland and Mexico were the hosts for this forum. Mami Mizutori, special representative of the secretary-general for disaster risk reduction (DRR) and head of UNDRR said that Indonesia is a disaster laboratory and has a fairly high commitment to DRR. Therefore, this year, Indonesia is the host for this Forum.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo will be present and open the meeting on May 25, 2022. The largest composition of participants consists of government delegations, non-profit organizations, academics, and other UN agencies. The Director of Human Rights and Humanity of the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Achsanul Habib, said that his party had recorded more than 5,536 applicants from 182 countries. Of this figure, around 4,000 participants will be physically present.

As a humanitarian institution that is at the forefront of responding to disaster issues, Human Initiative also attended this Forum. During the event, Human Initiative also had the opportunity to be one of the resource persons in the Indonesian Resilience House (RRI), a forum that is part of the GPDRR. In one of the talk shows, Human initiative will discuss strengthening local actors through PEER (Preparing to excel in Emergency Response).

Initiator Friends, let’s support the success of this year’s GPDRR event. Hopefully the target of this event can be achieved, one of which is to raise public awareness about the need for disaster preparedness.
