About

An Online Workshop on Disaster Risk Reduction and Early Warning Systems for All through Effective Gender-Responsive Planning, Digital Government Transformation and Financing will be held on 23 - 25 July 2024. It is being organized by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), through the Division for Public Institutions and Digital Government (DPIDG) and its project office - United Nations Project Office on Governance (UNPOG), United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) CIFAL Jeju/Jeju International Training Center (JITC) and the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) Office for Northeast Asia (ONEA) and Global Education and Training Institute (GETI) and Making Cities Resilient 2030 (MCR2030), and UN Women Centre of Excellence for Gender Equality with support from the Incheon Metropolitan City and the Ministry of the Interior and Safety (MOIS) of the Republic of Korea.

The Workshop will introduce concepts and tools to help ensure effective and people-centered Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Early Warning Systems (EWS), and gender-responsive approaches, tools, checklists, and good practices for gender mainstreaming. It will provide a comprehensive understanding of concepts, tools, approaches, and limitations related to designing and implementing multi-hazard early warning systems at the national, local, and regional levels. In particular, participants will be introduced to practical tools for local planning and MHEWS gap assessment developed under the Making Cities Resilient (MCR2030) initiative, which was launched in 2020 to foster inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable cities by 2030, directly contributing to Sustainable Development Goal 11 (SDG11) and other global frameworks such as the Paris Agreement and the New Urban Agenda.

Moreover, the training will introduce the Handbook on Strengthening Resilience in Cities and Local Communities through Innovation and Digital Government, along with the Toolkit on Risk-informed Governance and Innovative Technology for Disaster Risk Reduction and Resilience. These resources, part of UN DESA’s Curriculum on Governance for the Sustainable Development Goals, will provide specific guidance on leveraging innovative technologies for DRR and resilience while integrating gender considerations seamlessly. Furthermore, the training will showcase government initiatives on gender mainstreaming, and inclusive EWS. The training will also assess financial readiness for disaster risk reduction and leverage global finance to address challenges in implementing gender-mainstreamed, disaster-resilient governance and planning with a special focus on disseminating EWS. Throughout the sessions, interactive quiz activities and examples of innovative solutions to build resilience across all levels of society will be provided to enhance learning outcomes and ensure a holistic understanding of gender-integrated disaster risk reduction and resilience efforts.
