NbSI Director Nathalie Seddon recently joined Mami Mizutori, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), and Dr. Krishna S. Vatsu, member of India’s National Disaster Management Authority, to discuss the importance of nature-based solutions for disaster and climate resilience.

Part of the ‘conversation with Mami’ podcast series, the discussion supported the release of the UNDRR guide ‘Words into Action: Nature-based solutions for disaster risk reduction.’

The ‘Words into Action’ series consists of guidelines based on global expertise, communities of practice, and networks of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) practitioners. The guidelines provide practical, specific advice on implementing a people-centered approach to DRR in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
