Environment, Gender, and Disasters

  • Rhone Room at International Environment House 2, 7 – 9 Chemin de Balexert, 1219 Geneva

To mark the International Day for Disaster Reduction, the Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction (PEDRR) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) would like to invite you to participate to Environment, Gender, and Disasters. The event will be held on 11 October 2019 from 09:30 to 14:00 at the International Environment House 2 (Rhône Room, Chemin de Balexert 7 – 9, 1219, Geneva).

The event will feature topical presentations and a panel discussion on the role of women and gender minority groups in disaster risk reduction. The event will also feature the launch of Disasters and Ecosystems: Resilience in a Changing Climate, a book on the importance of ecosystems and their management for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. The book notably features a chapter fully dedicated to the importance of including women and gender minorities in disaster risk management.

PEDRR will also inaugurate its new Virtual Global Support Center, which will offer dedicated technical expertise on Ecosystem-based approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction, along with a virtual library, new regional networks and knowledge hubs, and a greater access to data, maps, and tools.
