Grassroots women have mobilized to create and mainstream innovative practices to mitigate climate and disaster risks and institutionalize a holistic and integrated approach to resilience. In order to bring this change to their communities, they have built long-term partnerships with local, national and regional authorities, as well as other stakeholders with important outcomes in Latin America, Asia and Africa. This event will facilitate a discussion around the advantages of grassroots women’s partnerships with institutional actors and the emerging opportunities this brings for accelerating DRR and resilience building in the context of the consultations to collectively define the next frameworks for policy and action for development: the Post-2015 agenda, HFA2 and Habitat III.
