Стратегия сохранения водно-болотных угодий России.

With its traditional sectoral economic and scientific attitudes regarding mires, Russia needs an integrated approach to, and broad inter-sectoral collaboration in, planning mire conservation and wise use. An important step towards in this direction was made through the adoption of the inter-sectoral framework document, “Action Plan for Peatland Conservation and Wise Use in Russia.” This document was developed as part of the implementation of decisions of the Ramsar Convention at the national level regarding the wise use of peatlands (Resolution VIII.17). To fulfill some of the major activity directions, which were adopted, a long-term project on peatland conservation was launched within the framework of the Wetlands International – Russia Programme.

A recipe for resilience

The unique approach from the Partners for Resilience (PfR) to the building of community resilience, developed with more than 40 local implementing partner agencies, integrates climate change adaptation and ecosystem management and restoration into disaster risk reduction (DRR). This experience over the past four years of evidence-based, holistic risk reduction can contribute meaningfully to the collective commitment to a post-2015 framework. The PfR key messages and ‘calls to action’ at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (WCDRR) at Sendai, Japan, are presented in this position document.

PEDRR policy brief for post-2015 Hyogo Framework

The growing evidence and endorsement of ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction should likewise be reflected in HFA-2. Environment should be regarded as a cross-cutting issue and clearly articulated in the text and sustainable ecosystem management solutions should be explicitly recognized as a solution for disaster risk reduction and building resilience. The PEDRR network (Wetlands International is a member) provides final input to the post-2015 Hyogo Framework negotations through this policy brief.
