HELP-GWP consultation on Draft Principles on Investment and Financing for Water-related Disaster Risk Reduction
Global Water Partnership South Asia in collaboration with High-level Experts and Leaders Panel on Water and Disasters (HELP) and the Government of Japan is scheduled a sub-regional consultation, to gain inputs from experts and practitioners in the region on the draft principles on Investment and Financing for Water-related Disaster Risk Reduction. The consultation is scheduled for 12 October 2018 at the Yellow River Auditorium, International Water Resources Management (IWMI), Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Given the importance of paying attention to water-related disasters, HELP drafted ‘principles on investment and financing for water related disaster risk reduction’, which was launched during the 8th World Water Forum in Brazil with the presence of Japanese Crown Prince. Global leaders will table these principles for endorsement during the 4th United Nations Special Thematic Session on Water and Disasters, planned in 2019.
