To mark the International Day for Disaster Reduction, this event will explore the nexus between gender inclusiveness and ecosystem-based approaches to 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 launch its new visual identity and give participants a sneak preview of its new Virtual Global Support Center, which will offer dedicated technical expertise on Eco-DRR, along with a virtual library, new regional networks and knowledge hubs, and a greater access to data, maps, and tools.
