Official launch of the Practical Guidelines for integrating gender, human rights and environmental issues in Disaster Risk Management
On Wednesday 1st December, the PPRD gender advisor Jenny Molin and environmental advisor Mathias Österdahl will host a brown bag webinar. The topic for the webinar is to introduce how PPRD East 3 are integrating cross cutting issues gender, human rights and environment in the programme. It is also the official launch of a brand new tool supporting this approach, namely the Practical guidelines for integrating gender, human rights and environmental issues in Disaster Risk Management.
The Guidelines build upon global standards and best practices and present practical advice on how to integrate gender, human rights and environment into nine thematic areas of the programme. Examples of thematic areas include, training and exercises, Multi-Risk Assessments, Early Warning Systems, Public awareness, volunteerism and Host Nation Support. The main target groups of the guidelines are the programme experts and partner organisation staff in the partner countries. However, they may also be of use outside the programme, and could support other actors in the Eastern Partnership region, and beyond.
The document was produced in collaboration with the programme experts and partner countries’ organisations to enhance the quality and relevance of the guidance. The Guidelines was produced as an interactive online resource and is available in English and Russian on the programme website from 1st of December.
