TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Indonesia is hosting the United Nations' Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR). The event is scheduled to take place in Nusa Dua, Bali, from 23 to 28 May, with the theme 'From Risk to Resilience'.

Indonesia's Foreign Affairs Minister Retno Marsudi told reporters on Tuesday that the forum aims to achieve resilience in disaster management.

"The meeting will be held for change of experience, best practices, and as well as capacity building in the context of how the state handles and anticipates disasters, which of course do not happen only once," Retno said May 24.

She added that this forum is the most suitable platform for collaborations, both nationally and regionally.

The GPDRR Summit in Bali is the 7th event organized by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction. Indonesia is the first Asian country to host the GPDRR Summit.

So far, 6,000 participants from 183 countries are joining the event. Meetings are held on a hybrid basis, with 70 percent attending face-to-face.

The event's participants are 24 percent NGOs, 20 percent government, 11 percent academics, and 7 percent business. Among those attending the meeting are UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, UN General Assembly President Abdulla Shahid, and the UNDRR Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction Mami Mizutori.
