UNDP invites you to participate in an online discussion to help develop an integrated framework for mainstreaming disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) into development. The purpose of this e-discussion is to engage stakeholder groups, experts, practitioners and policy-makers across the globe in a dialogue to capture experiences and feedback to guide the development of an integrated DRR-CCA mainstreaming framework. This will be a practical tool to help governments at all levels operationalise the mainstreaming of climate change and disaster risk reduction into development policy, plans, projects, budgets, monitoring and evaluation. The current phase of the discussion (until 6 May) is focusing on two questions: (1) What are the critical components and specific entry points for mainstreaming? (2) What guidance is needed to help practitioners apply the tool?

How does change happen? Why is progress slow to happen? The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPDEC) Monitoring Advisory Group has developed a theory of change, that highlights challenges, issues and directions in achieving more effective development co-operation through the Global Partnership and aims to explore why there has been progress in some areas since Busan, but limited advances in others. The Monitoring Advisory Group is seeking views on this theory of change until 15 April. This consultation is open to all interested stakeholders (including developing country governments, development co-operation providers and non-state actors) and will take place on the Global Partnership Teamworks community site. All comments should be provided directly through the Teamworks platform; you will be asked to join the Global Partnership community space to provide written input.
