2024 Africa Regional Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (AfRP-9)

The Africa Regional Platform is an important DRR coordination mechanism that provides a platform for all DRR stakeholders to take stock of progress and agree on the way forward to accelerate the implementation of the Sendai Framework and the Programme of Action for its implementation in Africa.

Taking place once every three years, the 9th Session of the Africa Regional Platform (AfRP-9) will take place from 22 to 23 October 2024 in Windhoek, Republic of Namibia. The AfRP-9, which will be preceded by pre-conference and side events on 21 October 2024, is expected to prepare the draft outcome document (Windhoek Declaration) for consideration and adoption by Ministers and Heads of delegations responsible for DRR in Africa at the 8th High-Level meeting on DRR to be held on 24 October 2024 back-to-back with the AfRP-9. The outcomes of the AfRP-9 and the High-Level Meeting will inform the agenda and the outcome of the 2025 Global Platform for DRR (2-6 June 2025, Geneva, Switzerland).

The Africa Regional Platform programme is currently being developed. More information will become available soon.
