Nature as a connector between disaster risk reduction, climate, land and biodiversity

The 5th Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction (PEDRR) Network workshop is taking place on 13-15 September, 2023 at the UN Campus in Bonn. The event will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Network and define a 15-year science-policy agenda that will address how ecosystem-based approaches for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation can deliver across the 2030 Global Agenda and beyond to 2040.

New public and private financing schemes for Nature based Solutions (NbS) are emerging rapidly. These are driven by both regulatory compliance, global pledges for restoration and market forces, which put forward nature as a potentially profitable and tradeable market asset. Jaroslav Mysiak, Director of the CMCC Division on Risk Assessment and Adaptation Strategies and coordinator of the Naturance project, will moderate a thematic session on financing NbS for disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation.

The aim of the session moderated by Mysiak is to define main research gaps and action points for the PEDRR Network action plan 2040 and to develop recommendations to UNDRR and Rio Conventions on alignment of NbS for RR finance mechanisms, priority research topics and future scenarios of NbS for DRR investment priorities.
