Canada's Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction will be hosting the Eighth Annual National Roundtable on Disaster Risk Reduction in Halifax, Nova Scotia on October 23 - 24, 2017. This year's theme for the Roundtable, Building Back Better, encourages participants to engage in a dialogue related to the fourth priority for action under the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The second day of the Roundtable will be held jointly with Canada's Climate Change Adaptation Platform. The Canadian Risk and Hazards Network's (CRHNet) Annual Symposium 2017 will follow on  October 25-27, 2017.

The Roundtable serves as an inclusive multi-sectoral consultative mechanism to advance disaster risk reduction in Canada. This two day event is free of charge and open to all interested participants, including: the private sector, all levels of government, Indigenous peoples, non-governmental organizations, academia and the general public. 

This year's program will include several workshops, panel discussions, and interactive activities on topics related to climate change adaptation and ways Canada can “build back better”. It will also reflect upon 150 years of disasters in Canada and focus on the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion.

A block of rooms has been made available at the hotel. Please reference the Roundtable on Disaster Risk Reduction when making your reservation.

The Seventh Annual National Roundtable on Disaster Risk Reduction took place on November 21 - 22, 2016 in Montréal, Québec. The Report for this event will be available shortly on Canada's Platform Secretariat webpage. Reports of previous Roundtables are also available.

We look forward to seeing you in Halifax!
