PEDRR Lunch Seminar
Advancing the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda through Ecosystem-based solutions and Celebrating 10 years of PEDRR 2008-2018
Date: 4 December 2018
Location: Palais des Nations, Geneva
The objective of this event is to assess how ecosystem-based approaches are supporting implementation of our global commitments to build local and national resilience against disasters and climate change. This seminar will discuss effective ways of reporting achievements against these global commitments. Specifically, it will address current efforts in advancing and scaling up Eco-DRR implementation and reporting mechanisms for the Sendai Framework and SDGs, Convention on Biological Diversity, and Ramsar Convention on Wetlands.
Speakers are invited to share their visions and perspectives on new opportunities for expanding the role of ecosystems across the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. This event also 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 ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and promote more sustainable and resilient local and national development.
