    An international symposium on “Climate Action and Disaster Risk Reduction” will be held on 08 March 2020, aiming to strengthen the synergies between three major global agendas – the Paris Agreement, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, and the SDGs – giving full consideration to the status of domestic and international climate change adaptation efforts, as well as bearing in mind the climate-related disasters that the world is already seeing now and are likely to intensify in the future. It will be co-organised by the Ministry of the Environment Japan, Cabinet Office Japan, and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR).

    UNU-IAS will be collaborating with this symposium through the Governance for Sustainable Development Project. For more information, please click here.
