International Recovery Forum 2017

International Recovery Platform

Hotel Okura Kobe 2-1 Hatoba-cho, Chuo-ku, Kobe, Hyogo

The International Recovery Forum 2017 is an opportunity to share and learn about “build back better” in regards to healthy, resilient communities.

Health is a critical issue for disaster risk reduction (DRR). In recognition of this, health is now given greater emphasis in both the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The International Recovery Platform, in response to these new global frameworks, has reinvigorated its role to meaningfully discuss “build back better” and learn more about actions for recovery, rehabilitation, and reconstruction. In this context, it is important to explore whether and how health considerations are taken into account in the recovery and reconstruction process.


  • Explore how "build back better" can be addressed in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; 
  • Explore knowledge and understanding through the sharing of country experiences; 
  • Explore strategies and actions on health through sharing experiences on the integration of a health agenda into disaster recovery, including consulting on the updated edition of Guidance Note on Recovery for Health.
