Machana Shamukuni, assistant minister for Botswana’s presidential affairs, governance and public administration, will attend the sixth session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GP2019) scheduled for May 13-17 in Geneva, Switzerland.

This year’s theme is, Resilience Divided: Towards Sustainable and Inclusive Societies.


A press release from the ministry states that the biennial conference is a UN forum where legislators, practitioners, developmental organizations, academia and the civil society converge to discuss disaster risk reduction matters at global level through progress review, knowledge-sharing and discuss the latest developments and trends in reducing disaster risk.

The conference will also present an opportunity for countries to identify gaps and make recommendations to further accelerate the implementation of the global disaster risk-reduction and resilience agenda.
