Disaster risks can be reduced if ecosystem-based solutions are integrated into DRR, climate change adaptation and sustainable development planning. A full understanding of root causes to risk across the landscape and how we manage land and water resources is central to sustainability and resilience. Ecosystems globally are under pressure. We need initiatives that can transform whole landscapes into safer and more prosperous environments. The Sendai Framework recognises this fundamental shift, but what does it take to speed up implementation on the ground? We will share promising examples and identify different components of a forward-looking plan.
