The 15th Consultative Group (CG) meeting of the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) jointly organized by the World Bank and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be held on May 15 and 16, 2014 in Oslo, Norway.
The meeting will take stock of progress since the last gathering in November 2013 and provide a forum for discussion on GFDRR priorities, including monitoring and evaluation, new trust fund architecture, and civil society and gender strategies. We will also seize the opportunity to look at challenges ahead, and reflect on innovative approaches and new partnerships in our common interest, ensuring the meeting also provides a platform for learning.
A provisional agenda and information on local logistics (including hotel reservation) are attached. Background papers will be shared with you ahead of the meeting.
We count on your participation. Kindly register by April 10, 2014 at the link above. We also hope you will remain in Oslo to celebrate the Norway National Day on May 17. Further information on local celebrations to mark the holiday will be shared closer to the time.
