Distinguished invited panellists will provide an overview and insight into major climate change and disaster risk reduction policy objectives for 2020 in the context of COVID-19 pandemic. This will help practitioners from the humanitarian and disaster risk management communities understand critical climate related policy objectives, identify ways risk management and humanitarian actions can contribute to climate change related planning, and highlight ways we may wish to adjust work in the contact of COVID-19. Can we use projects already identified in countries’ national DRR, climate change adaptation plans and the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) as part of the stimulus and recovery?
