ActionOnDR 2017 Overview
GRV Global proudly presents the second annual Action on Disaster Relief event being held at the Wyndham Panama Albrook Mall Hotel on 24-26 January 2017 in Panama City.

Earlier this year, “ActionOnDR2016 set the foundations to create a long-lasting partnership 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” concluded H.E. María Luisa Navarro, Vice Minister of Multilateral Affairs and Cooperation of the Government of Panama.
Action on Disaster Relief 2017 will continue this momentum by tackling the key issues around preparedness, risk reduction, disaster relief and recovery head-on, through GRV Global’s personable format of presentations, networking/social events, and face-to-face matchmaking meetings. Once again, the Latin America and Caribbean region will be well represented by senior government officials alongside key United Nations, disaster agency, EU, NGO, society, trade and chamber 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 and services capable of furthering the region’s disaster relief efforts.

    Who should attend?
    The key to creating lasting collaborations is engagement. At a GRV Global event you will engage all participants directly whether that's during the plenary sessions, around the venue at one of our more social networking occasions or, through our structured matchmaking sessions.
    Those wishing to initiate or further their disaster related operations across the Latin America and Caribbean region need to attend Action on Disaster Relief. Equally, representatives of UN, U.S. and EU disaster agencies, NGO and government officials, think-tanks and academics should grasp the opportunity to meet hundreds of link-minded colleagues in a safe, relaxed yet stimulating and enjoyable environment. 
    Action on Disaster Relief is a must attend event for those looking to help their organisations improve emergency and humanitarian response while driving stable economic development! GRV Global offers a rare forum through which international participants can meet, engage, and return home with tangible results.
