Language
English

This side event will bring together representatives from governments, international organizations and non-governmental organizations to discuss examples, opportunities and challenges for inclusion of human mobility (forced displacement, voluntary migration and planned relocation), into disaster risk reduction activities. In order to illustrate the importance of linking disaster risk reduction and human mobility, the side event will showcase the experiences of high disaster risk countries, least developed countries and Small Island Developing States with respect to dealing with human mobility in the context of disasters caused by slow and sudden onset natural hazards. The panelists will debate the strategic importance of integrating human mobility aspects into the draft Post-2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction by touching upon the “4 priorities for action” with a view to supporting the implementation of the new Framework.

Discussions will be done in English. Please circulate this invitation to your colleagues and network. Looking forward to seeing you at the side event!
