To strengthen coherence in UN resilience-building efforts at the regional, country and local levels, the Chief Executive Board (CEB) of the UN decided that a UN resilience framework was needed, covering all types of hazards and risks and promoting greater horizontal collaboration and joined-up efforts across the UN System and partners.
Against this background, the webinar specifically aims to:
  • Introduce to the gFSC coordinators the UN Guidance on Resilience that provides a UN-wide guidance on building resilience for delivering the 2030 Agenda, embedded in the UN Reform and the UN Secretary-General’s Prevention Agenda;
  • Promote within the gFSC a common understanding of resilience that is based on shared principles and to offer operational and practical guidance for resilience building to the UN System and its partners;
  • Enhance coherence among existing normative frameworks and documents, and to integrate a resilience lens into existing work of the gFSC in line with the UN Guidance on Resilience intends to provide an UN-wide guidance on building resilience for delivering the 2030 Agenda.
