Why cover the GP2022?

The Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GP2022) has brought together the world’s best minds on disaster risk reduction and the most senior officials in charge of mitigating disasters. Moreover, it has been an opportunity for countries and organizations to share good practices and exchange ideas on how to address challenges in light of increasing risks in a complex world. Journalists from around the globe have been welcomed to register and attend the Global Platform, both to learn about the latest issues in DRR and to share what they learn with their audiences.
The GP2022 has included ministerial sessions and there has been an onsite media center for use by journalists. Accredited journalists have also been invited to attend briefings by experts, a closing summary session and have had the chance to participate in media visits.
