The discussions at the Forum will dwell on the role of private sector in disaster recovery. It will showcase primarily the experiences and lessons of private sector, including its partnership with the public sector as well as the initiatives that target the disabled, senior citizens, and other marginalized groups. The outcome of the discussions will inform the recovery component of the post-HFA framework that will be presented at the Third World Conference on Disaster Reduction in 2015 at Sendai City, Japan. This event will also provide venue for policymakers and practitioners to share knowledge and experience on recovery operations as well as lessons on addressing emerging challenges and gaps. The lessons that will be shared and presented in this event will serve as examples for others, as these will help accelerate learning from disasters by conscious application of these lessons to similar situations.
