HLPF Side event - register now - 6th of July (6-7:30pm EDT) Governance of disasters risk reduction and resilience to boost the sustainable development goals
Within the project we have looked at the engagement of stakeholders in drawing up disaster plans at all levels of government. We have also reviewed the available indicators that might be used.
We will discuss how to approach stakeholder identification and engagement processes in the context of multi-level governance to ensure that no one is left behind.
Vulnerability is multi-faceted and can be based on discrimination, geography or isolation, governance or policy, socio-economic status, and/or disaster exposure.
It will include the UNC Snow Angel approach to Stakeholders.
