2 radhika murti pedrr workshop introductory session [compatibility mode]

  1. 1. What is PEDRR? Global alliance of UN agencies, NGOs and specialist institutes formally established in 2008, including regional bodies such as ADPC and The Council of Europe To promote increased collaboration at the regional level, PEDRR collaborates with the Disaster and Environment Working Group for Asia (DEWGA)
  2. 2. Vision Build resilient communities as a result of improved ecosystem management for disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) Objective Pool expertise and advocate for policy change and best practice in ecosystem management for DRR and CCA, based on science, practitioners’ experience and indigenous knowledge
  3. 3. Rationale Healthy and well-managed ecosystems - such as coral reefs, mangroves, forests and wetlands - reduce disaster risk by acting as natural buffers or protective barriers, for instance through flood and landslide mitigation and water filtration and absorption. Fully-functioning ecosystems build local resilience against disasters by sustaining livelihoods and providing important products to local populations.
  4. 4. Rationale Maintaining and enhancing ecosystems for natural hazard mitigation and prevention can strengthen local adaptation capacities to counter the effects of climate change. Adopting an integrated approach to ecosystem management for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation is therefore the way forward. Incorporating the use of biodiversity and ecosystem services in an overall strategy to help people adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change is the basis of Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA).
  5. 5. Focus Seeks to promote and scale-up implementation of ecosystem-based DRR Ensures it is mainstreamed in development planning at global, national and local levels, in line with the Hyogo Framework for Action Provides technical and science-based expertise and applies best practices in ecosystems-based DRR approaches
  6. 6. Partnership Pool and share resources (expertise, knowledge, networks, field experieces and learn from each other) to strengthen our work andcollectively have a higher impact Partnership and collaborations Provide the opportunity for others to tap into a network in this area of work rather than individual organisations
