The recent impacts of floods and droughts are increasing our vulnerability as climate change effects unfold. And making us nervous and uncertain about the future and how to protect ourselves. Land restoration is an affordable way to increase our own resilience to these disasters. But how?

Join us for Episode 3 of Let’s Talk Land to learn about the significance of land restoration in disaster resilience and sustainable recovery efforts, with real-world examples.

By examining how land restoration, climate change and disaster risk reduction (DRR) interact and intersect, we will uncover how nature-based solutions can contribute effectively to both climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies. 

Our expert speakers will present the latest approaches, methods, and technologies of integrating land restoration in disaster risk reduction and resilience planning. They will analyze the advantages and challenges associated with these methods. 

But wait, there’s more! The speakers will also discuss how to integrate land restoration in prevention and post-disaster recovery planning. They will also identify opportunities for collaboration and action at local, national, and global levels. 

The webinar is organized in partnership with the PEDRR Secretariat and United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR). The speakers are: 

  • Ms Bora Masumbuko, Senior Programme Officer, Drylands, International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN)
  • Ms Kristin Meyer, Programme Management Officer, Intergovernmental Processes, Interagency Cooperation and Partnerships Branch, United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)
  • Mr Vincent van Haaren, Programme Lead and Advisor, Making Disaster Management Sustainable: Understanding the Role of nature-based solutions – Zambia, Red Cross Netherlands.

By the end of the webinar, you have a good grasp of the crucial role land restoration plays in climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies.
