Workshop on Crises Mitigation and Resilience-Building for the LDCs
27 April 2017 @ 9:00 am
UN-OHRLLS is organizing a one day workshop to identify appropriate policies and measures at the national, regional and international levels to support crisis mitigation and resilience building in LDCs, taking into account their specific constraints, especially with respect to resources and capacities, with the aim of undertaking an in-depth study.
The meeting will examine various risk mitigation and resilience building mechanisms at the national, regional and global levels, macroeconomic policies and social protection mechanisms to reduce individual vulnerability, insurance and reinsurance products and bonds, and national and intergovernmental arrangements for rapid response at the onset of the crises. The event will also consider options for leveraging existing arrangements, such as SDRs and guarantees, to provide a liquidity cushions for LDCs in case of any internal and external crises and shocks. The role of multi stakeholder partnerships would also feature prominently in the discussions.
