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.
This seminar aims to increase the awareness of civil society actors, policy makers, activists, NGOs and scholars about the gendered aspects of ecosystem approaches to disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation or, ‘Ecosystem based disaster risk reduction and adaptation’ (Eco-DRR/EbA).
