Action on Disaster Relief 2021
24-25 February 'Virtual Event'

GRV Global proudly presents the 6th annual Action on Disaster Relief (ADR2021) forum being held on 24-25 February 2021. Due to the unprecedented Covid-19 challenges being faced globally, ADR2021 will take place in a virtual format online.

“The Action on Disaster Relief (ADR) forum sets the foundations to create long-lasting partnerships among us (public and private sector leaders); to coordinate actions to generate the preparedness required to reduce the impact of disasters and face them in the most effective way” remarked H.E. María Luisa Navarro, Former Vice Minister of Multilateral Affairs & Cooperation of the Government of Panama, at the inaugural ADR forum in Panama, 2016.

ADR still remains an opportunity like no other! Holding ADR2021 virtually means no travel time away from the office; you get to meet key decision makers and industry experts from the safety of your own home or office. Our world-class online virtual platform is intuitive, engaging and easy to navigate. All of GRV Global's revered format aspects will be featured: an auditorium featuring high-level discussion panels & presentations, business networking & online chat, interactive booths inc. video chat, and 1-2-1 matchmaking meetings via private video breakout rooms. ADR2021 will continue its momentum by tackling the key issues around preparedness, risk reduction, disaster relief and recovery head-on... Once again, the Latin America & Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico region will be well represented by senior Government officials alongside key United Nations, U.S., disaster agency, and NGO stakeholders. Action on Disaster Relief offers a very rare opportunity for leading public and private sector actors to share experiences and knowledge, develop best practices, and showcase new technologies & services capable of furthering the region’s disaster relief and resilience efforts.
