‘The world we want: transforming from crisis to opportunity’ - UNFCCC and UNDRR MoU signing and online event
The 2020 edition of the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction (IDDRR) focuses on “good risk governance”. Many disasters can be avoided or minimized if there are disaster disk deduction strategies and national adaptation plans in place to manage and reduce existing levels of risk and to avoid the creation of new risk.
In recognition of the need for a coherent approach to addressing the climate emergency and associated disaster risk, UNFCCC and UNDRR will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
Moderator: Stephanie Speck, UNDRR Chief of Comms
• Ms. Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change
• Ms. Mami Mizutori, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction and Head of UNDRR
The event will be hosted using WebEx.
