Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction – GP2022

The Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction – GP2022 reaches its seventh edition this year. The Government of Indonesia and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) organized the event. It consists of six days focused on disaster risk governance, taking into account the global COVID-19 crisis, the progress in the implementation of the Sendai Framework (2015-2030), and the goals set by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The main topic that names the event “From Risk to Resilience: towards sustainable development for all in a COVID-19 transformed world” will target different audiences, regional and political levels, with the joint engagement of representatives from Governments, the United Nations, and many stakeholders in the two Ministerial Roundtables, four High-Level Meetings, and fourteen thematic sessions.

For the GP2022 edition, the Head of the Civil Protection Department, Fabrizio Curcio, will speak at the Roundtable on May 25, with a video message dedicated to climate change and the commitment of the National Civil Protection System.

The Department of Civil Protection also contributes to the realization of the Sendai Framework with the Mydewetra.world platform, presented for the occasion at the stand set up by the CIMA Foundation, which represents the evolution of the Mydewetra application already used by the Central Functional Center of the Department for forecasting, monitoring and surveillance in real-time of all environmental risks.

Mydewetra.world, the new open-source integrated system, is designed to be a single point of access to information and data available on a global, regional and local scale, provided by authoritative Institutions and Agencies in the field.

The application developed by the Department is the result of the Agreement with the CIMA Foundation for scientific methodologies and technologies for disaster risk management in Italy and the countries cooperating with Italy.

myDEWETRA.world is also the subject of the Agreement between the Civil Protection Department and the World Meteorological Organization.
