On 1 December, the EU-funded programme ‘Prevention, Preparedness and Response to natural and man-made disasters in Eastern Partnership countries – phase 3 (PPRD East 3)’ organises a webinar to introduce how cross-cutting issues of gender, human rights and environment are integrated into the programme.
During the event, PPRD will also launch 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 provide examples from thematic areas, include training and exercises, multi-risk assessments, and early warning systems.
The main target groups are programme experts and partner organisation staff in the partner countries. However, they may also support other actors in the Eastern Partnership region, and beyond.
The Guidelines were produced as an interactive online resource, and will be available in English and Russian on the programme website from 1 December.
