Local leaders forum at the GP2022 on 23 May 2022 in Bali, Indonesia.
Local governments play an essential role in disaster risk reduction and building resilience. At UNDRR’s 2022 Global Platform, the Local Leaders Forum opened a productive discussion on important issues around disaster resilience at city and district level.
I thank the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Government of Indonesia for organizing this Seventh Global Platform, which takes place in a context whereat the international community faces enormous and urgent challenges.
