IUCN led a panel discussion side-event on 24 June, where representatives from the projects ‘Building Resilience to Climate Change – Coastal Southeast Asia’ (BCR) and ‘Ecosystems Protected Infrastructure and Communities’ (EPIC); together with Mangroves for the Future (MFF), International Centre for Environmental Management(ICEM), and the Thai NGO the Sustainable Development Foundation(SDF), came together to discuss nature-based solutions to disaster risk reduction and climate change resilience-building in Asia.
The 6th AMCDRR provided final outcome documents consisting of a political declaration called the Bangkok Declaration on DRR; an Asia-Pacific Input Document for the post-2015 framework for DRR (Hyogo Framework for Action 2); and a set of Voluntary Commitment Statements made by key stakeholder groups such as Parliamentarians, the Private Sector and the Media etc.
