The Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction Cross-Regional Symposium aims to bring together members of the five networks to:

• Connect members of the five networks and learn about their work and institutions

• Provide a platform for exchange and learning on teaching, research in specific topic areas or regions and the science implications for the upcoming policy meetings such as those for the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Global Platform on Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR)

• Present the key joint initiatives by PEDRR at the regional level (winter school) to discuss the development of new editions

• Jointly develop new Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction initiatives and outputs

Topics covered in the symposium

• Teaching Eco-DRR and potentials for collaborating on EcoDRR research and scholarships

• Advances/Innovations in Eco-DRR (e.g. engineering standards, principles, indicators, green infrastructure, rewilding etc.) and their science-policy implications

• Eco-DRR and Health (e.g. COVID-19) to provide inputs for the next GPDRR
