Learning Labs

The Context

The 2019 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction aims to provide numerous opportunities for Governments, UN system and all stakeholders to actively share good practices and to learn from each other on innovative approaches for implementing the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. In addition to the official programme, sufficient space will be allocated to more informal sessions where participants can exchange and share experiences among each other.

Purpose of the Learning Labs

Several learning labs sessions will provide facilitated peer-to-peer learning opportunities on specific topics relevant to the themes of the Global Platform. A small-scale setting of 20-30 participants will provide an effective environment for peer-to-peer learning and sharing knowledge and experiences. Participants are encouraged to actively contribute in this low-pressure environment and to contribute to a constructive dialogue.

How to Participate

Interested participants who are already registered for the GP 2019 will be able to register for the learning labs sessions through the link provided at the top of this page.

Please note that the space is limited we ask you to apply ONLY for sessions you will be able to participate, otherwise some applicants will lose an opportunity.

Applicants who are accepted to participate in the session will receive a confirmation email by the early May. Confirmed participants will be requested to show the confirmation email to access the learning lab room.
