The PPRD East 3 aims to integrate Cross Cutting Issues (CCIs) throughout the programme. This will ensure that the programme contributes to strengthening DRM system capacities in a way that enhances the resilience of society as a whole, leaving no one behind. It will also ensure that systems and actors account for the importance of the environmental, gender and human rights perspective throughout the different stages of the DRM cycle.
The approach to this task will be a systematic application of environment, gender and human rights perspectives to all phases of the programme, including planning, implementation, and follow-up of programme activities within all the thematic areas of the programme.
The work will be guided by international normative framework, e.g. Sendai Framework, the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris agreement, the EU Green deal and the EU Gender Equality strategy as well as by national legislation, policies and operational priorities.
Everyone involved in the programme have an important role to play, but the Programme also has two Environmental and Gender Advisors whose main task is to support the Expert team but also the network of appointed Environmental and Gender Focal points from the partner countries. To guide this work, a PPRD East 3 Practical guidelines for integrating gender, human rights and environmental issues in disaster risk management has been developed.
