2016/04/26: UNDP online-discussion on disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation

Phase two of the UNDP online-discussion to develop a practical tool to mainstream disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation into development is now open! This phase will continue for two weeks until 6 May 2016.

The feed-back we received from over 50 countries during the 1st Phase of the e-discussion was extremely encouraging. Thank you all once more! We posted a short summary report of the first phase with key highlights emerging from your contributions.


We have also started to scope out the key features of the new tool and would in particular welcome your feed-back on the following questions: 

1) What are the critical components and specific entry points for mainstreaming?

a) What components/entry points do you think are most critical?

b) Have we missed any?

2) What guidance is needed to help practitioners apply the tool?

a) Do you feel that such guidance is useful, and if yes, what are the key steps that need to be considered?

b) How can we ensure the steps are concrete, yet relevant across a wide spectrum of contexts, levels and sectors? 

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas, and hope that you will continue to share with us experiences to help shape the mainstreaming tool. Thank you for your participation!
