Statement by the Stakeholder Engagement Mechanism (SEM) of the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction
By Valeria Drigo, Policy Lead
By Bijay Kumar, Executive Director
Governments meeting at COP25 must invest more in risk-reduction strategies and minimise the loss and damage experienced by poorer communities - now.
GNDR has joined the Risk-Informed Early Action Partnership (REAP), a global initiative to protect one billion people at-risk from extreme weather and climate-related disasters like floods, heatwaves and typhoons.
GNDR has contributed to bringing community voices to high level discussions, and “everyday disasters” onto the global agenda. GNDR’s consistent focus on global advocacy has yielded clear results, and the network is now recognised as a key player in DRR.
