The World Reconstruction Conference is a global forum that provides a platform to collect, assess, and share disaster reconstruction and recovery experiences and take forward the policy dialogue for an effective international disaster recovery and reconstruction framework.

The Fifth Edition of the World Reconstruction Conference (WRC5) will be held in Indonesia on 23-24 May 2022, during the preparatory days of the Seventh Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction. The central theme of the WRC5 is "Reconstructing a Sustainable Future: Building Resilience through Recovery in a COVID-19 Transformed World". The conference will be organized under three sub-themes:

  • Addressing the social and economic impact of Covid-19 pandemic on “hard-won” development gains;
  • Social, infrastructural and economic recovery from disasters as an opportunity to reset the development pathway towards a greener and more resilient future;
  • Rethinking recovery governance models, including Planning, Financing and Managing recovery from complex and interconnected disaster-conflict events in the Covid-19transfromed world.

The WRC5 will be jointly hosted by UNDP, the World Bank (Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, GFDRR) and UNDRR under the umbrella of International Recovery Platform (IRP). It will bring together participants from national and local governments, civil society, the private sector, academia and international organizations from around the world to provide an opportunity to share experiences on different dimensions of recovery in the context of multi-dimensional risks countries are facing in the last few years.
