International Recovery Forum

The International Recovery Forum, established in 2005, convenes a broad range of senior policymakers and practitioners to exchange experiences and facilitate discussion on challenges to resilient recovery and opportunities for building back better. It is a forum designed to generate ideas and collaboration through dialogue and debate, sharing of experiences and the latest evidence in disaster recovery. The forum is coordinated annually in Kobe, Japan, by the International Recovery Platform (IRP) Secretariat, in close consultation with the IRP Steering Committee.

The annual forum is organized around themes to address key prevailing priorities and gaps in knowledge and practice for recovery and building back better. The forum’s themes link with the outcomes and lessons emerging from previous IRP Forums and other relevant global events, in order to advance the field. The International Recovery Forum is among the key activities managed by IRP in support of its mandate to share experiences and learning among countries and all relevant stakeholders, explicitly designated in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
