Webinars Series:  Climate Change and Resilience in times of COVID-19  

2. How to articulate Integrated Responses to the Health, Economic and Climate Crisis in LAC

 

Context:

In the context of increasing complexity, interdependence and systemic nature of risk, there is a need for multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder and regional coordination aiming to continue the preparation and implementation of mitigation actions for different recurrent and latent hazards in the current pandemic scenario. 


The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, and interlinked Regional and National strategies, are the vehicle for approaching systemic risk in alignment with the SDGs and the Paris Agreement. 


Risk reduction and resilience building needs to be at the heart of economic recovery (opportunity to address inequalities and vulnerabilities). 

 

Panelists:

  • Gustavo Mañez, climate change coordinator for LAC, UNEP. Integrated responses to the health, economic and climate crises
  • ECLAC (tbc) Macroeconomy and fiscal spaces for green financing

Moderator: Teresa Moll de Alba, Senior Manager LAC, UN Global Compact
