Everbridge, Inc., has announced that the company has joined the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies (ARISE).
Everbridge will attend the Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework on May 18-19 at the United Nations headquarters in New York, where it will showcase its organizational resilience solutions.
The Midterm Review of the Sendai Framework marks the halfway point in the implementation of the framework, which was adopted by UN member states in 2015. The Sendai Framework is a 15-year voluntary, non-binding agreement that aims to reduce disaster risk and build resilience in communities around the world, particularly in the face of climate-fueled threats.
“We are honored to work with the UNDRR’s Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies at such a pivotal moment of ongoing climate challenges,” said David Wagner, CEO of Everbridge. “Helping to build resilient communities and organizations is core to our mission. Everbridge is committed to acting now in driving the innovation and collaboration – with our customers, partners, and stakeholders – needed to pursue global climate goals within our industry and beyond.”
As a member of the UNDRR ARISE network, Everbridge will work with other private and public organizations to promote disaster-resilient communities and economies.
