As a global thematic platform of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR), PEDRR seeks to promote and scale-up implementation of ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and ensure it is mainstreamed in development planning at global, national and local levels, in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
The UNISDR Science and Technology Conference, which took place on 27-29 January in Geneva, Switzerland, served as a platform to set the agenda for DRR innovation and research over the next 15 years. PEDRR partners UNU-EHS, UNESCO and UNEP, were actively engaged in the preparations.
On 5 February, UNEP, together with the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute, held a consultative workshop on ecosystem‐based approaches for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in Nehru Marg, Nagpur, India.
