Manila declaration for global action on gender in climate change and disaster risk reduction

In this statement, parliamentarians from countries vulnerable to climate change, who came together in a consultative meeting in Manila to advance disaster risk reduction as a national and community priority and as a cost-effective tool for adaptation to climate change, commit themselves to advocate for policy changes that advance disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation at national and international levels and to propose national legislation that mainstreams gender-sensitive disaster risk reduction in national and regional development plans.

This statement concluded the forum co-convened by this representation with the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR).
