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.
2018 marks PEDRR’s 10th year anniversary of promoting ecosystem-based solutions for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
Join us to envision new ways of working together to scale up implementation of Eco-DRR and promote more sustainable and resilient local and national development!
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.
The course is free of charge and is open to all those interested in ecosystem-based solutions for reducing disaster and climate risks.
At the 2017 Global Platform on DRR in Cancun, PEDRR is advocating for Eco-DRR to be reflected in the Leaders’ Forum Communique and the Outcome Document of the GP. Read the PEDRR Policy Brief on Advancing the Sendai Framework.
The theme of the World Wetlands Day 2019 addresses one of the most pressing problems that humanity is facing and draws attention to the vital role of wetlands as a natural solution to cope with the increasing frequency and severity of extreme events such as storms and floods!
Published by the Secretariat of the Convention for Biological Diversity, this report serves as a key review of the synthesis of global experiences to Ecosystem-based Approaches to Climate Change and Disaster Risk.

Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction (Eco-DRR) is the sustainable management, conservation and restoration of ecosystems to reduce disaster risk, with the aim to achieve sustainable and resilient development. Well-managed ecosystems, such as wetlands, forests and coastal systems, act as natural infrastructure, reducing physical exposure to many hazards and increasing socio-economic resilience of people and communities by sustaining local livelihoods and providing essential natural resources such as food, water and building materials.Read more...
