Joining forces: PLACARD CCA & DRR workshop

24 October 2017


About the workshop

Integration, cooperation and collaboration between actors and organisations working on CCA and DRR is crucial in order to link the Paris Agreement, 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sendai Framework. This workshop aimed to support and boost these institutional strengthening efforts through:

  • Providing an overview of existing information on institutional capacity to address CCA and DRR at different scales
  • Discussion on how institutions working in CCA and DRR can enhance cooperation
  • PExamples of good practice at the forefront of integrating and mainstreaming CCA and DRR into policy and practice.

The workshop results – Vision 2030 and the way forward – will be used to support integration and mainstreaming of CCA & DRR into policy, institutional arrangements and practice.
