Every day this week we’ll be sharing brief highlights from our network’s engagement at the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GPDRR) 2022.
Day two of GPDRR 2022 has been fully packed and as every morning started with a daily briefing of highlights of the previous day and key sessions ahead. These daily gatherings provide an opportunity for our members to exchange experiences of GPDRR.
We were delighted to congratulate GNDR member SEEDS India for winning the Sasakawa Award. We are also proud of fellow member Atulya Foundation Private Limited for being shortlisted for the award.
The secretariat shared highlights of the donors’ roundtable organised yesterday, including agreement on the need for better coordination, communication, coherence and commitment amongst different stakeholders. Other messages included the increase of risk with Covid-19 and climate change being a main risk driver.
GNDR member Imad Mohamed from Huvadhoo Aid, Maldives, presented at the CADRI event on how they are working towards ‘leaving no one behind’ by using our Views from the Frontline approach. This was followed by a session connecting live with communities at risk, where members joined live from Cambodia and Zimbabwe. Our national partners were accompanied by local community leaders who explained the importance of hearing community voices and how they have fed into community-led actions and advocacy at the national level.
During the mid-term review plenary GNDR made interventions – primarily pushing our call to action at the global level.
The Making Displacement Safer round table is scheduled for later in day two .The objective of this event is learning and sharing from our partners who are implementing the project – more on this tomorrow.
