The World Reconstruction Conference 5

“Reconstructing for a sustainable future: Building resilience through recovery in a COVID-19 Transformed World”.

Dates: 23-28 May 2022 | Location: Bali, Indonesia (and Online) 

The WRC5 will focus on addressing the unprecedented socio-economic recovery needs as a pathway to rebuilding a resilient and sustainable society in the post Covid-19 world.

The conference will be organized under three sub-themes:

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

The WRC5 will be organized in conjunction with the 7th Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR, May 23-28, 2022, Bali, Indonesia) and is aligned with the thematic focus of the GPDRR that is “From Risk to Resilience: Towards Sustainable Development for All in a COVID-19 Transformed 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 the International Recovery Platform (IRP).
