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 Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.
The UNISDR Science and Technology Conference, which took place on 27-29 January in Geneva, Switzerland, served as a platform to set the agenda for DRR innovation and research over the next 15 years. PEDRR partners UNU-EHS, UNESCO and UNEP, were actively engaged in the preparations.
On 5 February, UNEP, together with the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute, held a consultative workshop on ecosystem‐based approaches for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in Nehru Marg, Nagpur, India.
A workshop on ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in Southeast Europe was organised by IUCN and the Council of Europe from 29 – 30 September, 2015. The workshop introduced nature-based solutions for DRR and CCA, presented case studies, analyzed local scenarios, and facilitated networking, in order to encourage implementation of ecosystem-based DRR and CCA solutions.
The UNISDR Science and Technology Conference, which took place on 27-29 January in Geneva, Switzerland, served as a platform to set the roadmap for innovation and research over the next 15 years and formed a science and technology partnership for implementing the Sendai Framework. To learn how PEDRR Partners contributed to this conference, read this past PEDRR News Alert. You can also find the conference programme here. Most notably, the development of a new Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) on the implementation and integration of the post-2015 development agendas was announced.Read more...
