Special Representative of the Secretary-General, United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction
I urge Governments to engage women and girls in the implementation of national and local strategies for disaster risk reduction throughout the Decade of Action to 2030.
Sustainable development can only be achieved if it’s risk-informed and all critical actors, in particular women and girls, are heard loud and clear with their expertise recognized and respected in building communities and nations’ resilience to disasters.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.
I am committed to promoting and implementing UNDRR’s organisation-wide Gender Strategy and Action Plan 2022-2025.
I am committed to expanding the Women’s International Network for Disaster Risk Reduction beyond the Asia-Pacific region.
