RCE East Kalimantan, RCE East Java (candidate), and RCE Srinagar will co-host a webinar ‘Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Preparedness, COVID-19 and Sustainability', marking the ‘International Day for Disaster Reduction’ (IDDR) 2020. The Day celebrates how people and communities around the world are reducing their exposure to disasters and raising awareness about the importance of reining in the risks that they face. The webinar will address SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure), SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), and SDG 13 (Climate Action) directly, and all other SDGs indirectly.

The webinar will consist of a panel discussion by experts and practitioners, followed by a Q&A session. For this webinar, there will be no presentations by RCEs. By attending, participants will understand various facets of DRR, the linkages between DRR and sustainability, and DRR Preparedness as key to achieving the SDGs and Agenda 2030.
