Dear members of the Global Network:

Greetings to all!  hoping this message finds you well, I´m  contacting you to update  on the sessions of the VIII United Nations Regional Platform for Disaster Reduction in which GNDR has a role and a representative; the sessions in which GNDR will participate are the product of lobbying and participation in the Advisory Committee for the development of the official agenda, where Graciela Salaberri, Chair of the Global Board, and I have influenced to include the work that you and the members of their countries are doing.

Below is the list of session types (Plenary, Parallel or side event) and the GNDR representative who is participating in the development of the Concept Note:

It is important to clarify that the role of the point of contact is to represent GNDR in that specific session, it will not necessarily be the person who participates as a presenter in the session, but rather the role is to ensure that civil society organizations are included in the session. session; Subsequently, and based on what was discussed in each work team of the session, an attempt will be made to identify the profile that is desired and summon the member or NFP who may be the ideal person to present in each session. If any of you are interested in participating in the listed sessions, do not hesitate to contact Graciela, Martín or me, we have little time, so we would appreciate it if you do so as soon as possible.

Just this week we presented the first version of the concept note, and now with the comments received from the evaluation committee, the teams are meeting again to respond to the points indicated and improve/strengthen or change the focus of the concept notes.

I take this opportunity to send you the link so that you can
register on the Regional Platform to participate either virtually or in person. We will keep you posted, regards to all

Regional Leader for America and the Caribbean
