Engaging Indigenous Peoples in Disaster Risk Reduction

A special session at the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) Global Platform, coordinated by CPSC.

The theme of the 2013 UNISDR Global Platform is Invest Today for a Safer Tomorrow. CPSC is coordinating a Side Event at this global forum on Engaging Indigenous Populations in Disaster Risk Reduction. The Side Event will be followed by a strategy session to outline next steps and fortify a call for action to promote the inclusion of an indigenous perspective in the post-2015 global framework for disaster risk reduction.
