The 11th Consultative Group (CG) meeting of the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) Co-Chaired by the World Bank and the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) will be held on November 17 and 18, 2011 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Disaster risk management is a priority on the global agenda, as reflected in GFDRR’s expansion to 45 partners. As a result of your continued support this will be our largest meeting yet. The 11th CG will help GFDRR refine its results management system as well as communicate more effectively the positive impact made possible by your continued assistance. Moreover, the secretariat will be looking for your views in shaping important strategic objectives such as international coordination, engagement at the local level and with civil society organizations, as well as with the climate change adaptation agenda.
A Policy Forum will take place on Monday November 14th & Tuesday November 15th to examine and discuss best practices in local risk governance and identify areas to scale up community action and increase engagement.
