The Congress will provide a platform for sharing critical understanding, research, innovation, and good practices related to disaster risk reduction (DRR) and promoting interaction among scientists, policymakers, and practitioners. It will also serve as a forum for forging new partnerships and networks to enhance global resilience to disasters. Notably, the 6th WCDM has been designed to be the largest assembly on disaster management outside the UN system.
