The 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction is taking place in Cancun, Mexico from 22 – 26 May 2017. PEDRR Partners is organizing a series of events in the forum. The full list of events could be found in our latest issue of the newsletter.
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.
A Roundtable Discussion took place on 2 February 2017, in Geneva, and included panelists from IFRC, UNISDR, Wetlands International, IUCN, Ramsar Convention and the governments of Japan and Philippines.
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.
