The Geneva Nature-based Solutions dialogues aim to facilitate further engagement and discussion among the stakeholders in International Geneva and beyond, in the lead-up to a critical year for nature and society. The dialogues are convened by the Geneva Environment Network and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
On 13 October, the world celebrates the International Day for Disaster Reduction. It is an opportunity to acknowledge the progress being made toward reducing disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. This framework provides a global blueprint for reducing disaster losses and recognizes that environmental management is a key component that can reduce disaster risk and increase resilience.
This session will showcase how NbS contribute to global efforts to build resilience and implement the Sendai Framework. Leading experts will discuss the scientific basis of NbS to disaster risk reduction, as well as how to scale-up and make NbS a stronger focus for international cooperation on disaster risk reduction.
