UNDRR ONEA & GETI webinars
During April and May 2020, the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) Office for Northeast Asia and Global Education and Training Institute (ONEA & GETI) is hosting a number of webinars in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The topics range from the resilience of local governments, integrating public health and disaster risk management, parliamentary action to business continuity.
On May 13, UNDRR ONEA & GETI collaborated with ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability to deliver a webinar on the topic: ‘Applying the principles of resilience building and DRR for the unexpected’.
This webinar focussed on the past six months in Australia and the multiple, cascading disasters that have been experienced from fires, floods to the COVID-19 pandemic.
