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 Hyogo Framework for Action.
The EUGIC 2015 will take place on 23-24 Nov 2015 in Vienna, Austria, to showcase how nature-based solutions can address issues of climate change, biodiversity loss, water and energy management in cities. The Call for Papers and Projects is open until 15 October.
