About

The meeting will be hosted by the Asia Pacific Forum on Loss and Damage, ActionAid International, the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN), and LEAD Pakistan with support from the Asia-Pacific Network on Global Change Research (APN).

The theme of the workshop is enhancing resilience through the integration of disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation (CCA) and loss and damage and will bring together researchers, practitioners and others conducting research on loss and damage. The workshop will be held on the margins of the World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (WCDRR) to take place from March 14th to 18th, 2015. The aim of the workshop is to provide organizations with a unique opportunity to share knowledge of how DRR, CCA, and L&D can be harmonized and integrated to enhance resilience in vulnerable communities and countries and to continue to build partnerships and networks in the Asia Pacific region.  In addition participants will discuss how the relevance of HFA2 to addressing loss and damage and how the actions undertaken under the HFA2 can contribute to resilience building.
