➡️ Back to the IPPN group!
Join us for the next IPPN Knowledge Café, a webinar series focused on building the IPPN members’ capacity to better understand a systems perspective on policy integration and acceleration; and integrated policy solutions, including curation of tools and resources that support the design and implementation of cross-cutting policy solutions.
About this webinar
Join us to learn about the UN Common Guidance on Helping Build Resilient Societies, which aims to strengthen coherence in resilience-building efforts at country level by integrating a resilience lens into the UN Country Teams policy and programming processes.
The session will focus on the rationale for a coherent and coordinated effort from the UN on resilience-building that comprises the three UN pillars of development, human rights, peace and security; the shared conceptual understanding and key element for resilience-building across multiple sectors and for multiple risks, shocks and stresses; and how the approach is being implemented by UN partners at global, regional, and country levels.
