I urge Governments to engage women and girls in developing inclusive national and local strategies for disaster risk reduction by 2020. 

2030 is just around the corner. Sustainable development cannot be achieved if all critical actors, and in particular women and girls, are not heard loud and clear and their expertise is not recognized and respected in building communities and nations’ resilience to disasters.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
