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 (Eco-DRR) and ensure it is mainstreamed in development planning at global, national and local levels, in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
PEDRR Partners have launched a new network: ‘Eco-DRR-4-NbS – Experts Network‘! The network brings together Eco-DRR and NbS experts to ensure our advocacy work is grounded in the latest science and technology.
To join the Eco-DRR-4-NbS – Experts Network, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and join the dedicated LinkedIn Group.
On October 11, PEDRR and Friends of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (FEBA) hosted a seminar exploring the nexus between gender inclusiveness and Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction (Eco-DRR).

On 11 October 2019, PEDRR launched its new visual identity, including the new logo.
The new website was also previewed which will be launched at the end of this year. The new website will contain a Visual Support Center, which will offer technical expertise on Eco-DRR, a virtual library, new regional networks and knowledge hubs with more access to data, maps and other tools.
