IASC Results Group 4 Pop-Up Session on Scaling up Disaster Risk Reduction in Humanitarian Action
This pop-up session was an opportunity for UNDRR and OCHA to share an update on the Recommendations & Checklist, potential opportunities to enhance DRR in the Humanitarian Program Cycle, and share key findings from pilot testing of the Checklist in Pakistan. IASC RG 4 members reflected on next steps, including on the finalization and opportunities for roll-out of the checklist and application at country level, potential training/capacity building needs on DRR among humanitarian actors, and how this initiative could contribute to wider efforts to advance humanitarian-development collaboration.
