The AMCDRR 2016, taking place in New Delhi, India, will feature the thematic session: Ecosystem-based Approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction.
The session will focus on best practices for implementing ecosystem-based approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction and advancing the Sendai Framework Priorities for Action.
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.
