The 2022 Global Platform for DRR brought together the DRR and climate communities around a concrete goal: finding solutions to scale up climate adaptation. And several early warning initiatives showed interesting parallels in taking this agenda forward.
On 28 May 2022 Tanjung Benoa district in Bali received their UNESCO-IOC Tsunami Ready Recognition, becoming the first Tsunami Ready Community in Indonesia. Guests from the GPDRR witnessed a school evacuation drill prior to the inauguration ceremony.
In a world challenged by natural hazards that are increasing in frequency and intensity, the seventh session of the Global Platform on Disaster Risk Reduction 2022 (GP2022) could not be taking place at a more important moment.

The seventh Global Platform on Disaster Risk Reduction 2022 (GP2022) continued its work with another dense day, which included two plenary sessions on the Mid-term Review, a high-level dialogue, a ministerial roundtable, and other thematic sessions.
