    PEDRR workshop on engineering and ecosystem-based approaches for disaster risk reduction 14-16 June; UN campus in Bonn, Germany
    Shalini Dhyani, CEM YPN Co-Lead and Co-convener IUCN Task Force of IPS participated in PEDRR workshop on engineering and ecosystem-based approaches for disaster risk reduction. The Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction (PEDRR) organized its Third International Science-Policy Workshop from 14-16 June on the UN campus in Bonn. The workshop focussed on engineering and ecosystem-based approaches for disaster risk reduction (Eco-DRR/CCA). Bringing together experts from academia, research, the private sector, and policy, the international workshop aims to contribute to accelerating and scaling up the implementation of Eco-DRR/CCA in the engineering and planning communities. The workshop discussions were structured along key themes at the interface of “traditional engineering” and “Eco-DRR /CCA” type of solutions) a spectrum of perspectives from engineers to conservationists; ii) existing ecological engineering standards; as well as iii) the way forward for the development of ecological engineering standards for DRR/CCA where gaps are identified. The workshop also looked at economic considerations when assessing ecological/ecosystem-based options, engineering options, or hybrid ecological-engineering options, and drawn lessons from practical examples. In addition, participants considered “best practice” examples where improved construction/reconstruction standards have been successfully mainstreamed in development and infrastructure planning. The workshop was hosted by the Environmental Vulnerability & Ecosystem Services Section (EVES) of UNU-EHS and co-organized together with several PEDRR partners such as United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Wetlands International (WI), The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), in collaboration with Deborah Brosnan & Associates, and with the support of the European Commission. Dr. Dhyani also presented a small film on ecosystem based disaster risk reduction approaches by locals and indigenous communities of higher Himalayan Region in Garhwal, Uttarakhand.

    CEM Young Professionals Network (YPN)
    The Young Professionals Network (YPN) of CEM is a voluntary group of young professionals associated with ecosystem management. All members of the YPN are already members of CEM and are under 35 years of age. The YPN aims to connect young professionals working on issues which relate to the IUCN CEM foci through developing an interactive program which builds skills and collates and synthesizes diverse expertise around focal issues.
    .
    CEM YPN Vision
    Our vision is an intergenerational community of leaders who learn and work together within and through IUCN, for a world where ecosystems are managed in such a way as to sustainably provide their products and services to nature and mankind. Intergenerational exchange, learning, and collaboration are integral parts of how IUCN delivers its vision of "a just world that values and conserves nature." We aim to integrate “youth” contributions throughout the CEM network, facilitating skills interchange and harnessing talent at all levels, and raising awareness of CEM activities more widely.

    Omer Aijazi, a Young Professional within both CEM and CEESP has been appointed as IUCN Co-Cair for Mountain Ecosystems Thematic Group (METG). Omer is a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia. Omer Aijazi is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Educational Studies and Liu Scholar at the Liu Institute for Global Issues, at the University of British Columbia, Canada. He received a MA in Community and Social Planning at the University of British Columbia, and a BBA in Business Administration from the University of Toronto. Omer’s doctoral research is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and examines processes of social repair after natural disasters in settings of structural violence, where populations are most vulnerable. Geographically, Omer’s research is situated in Pakistan. Omer worked extensively with the international humanitarian system in 2010 Pakistan monsoon floods response. He worked closely with communities in several regions of the country and these intimate experiences continue to influence his work. In 2012, Omer returned to Pakistan on a research project with the United Nations Human Settlements Program (UN-HABITAT) to explore the role of religion and gender in disaster recovery. Omer also works with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as a junior consultant/post-graduate researcher on conflict sensitive climate change adaptation policy and natural resource governance frameworks. In 2013, funded by the Goethe-Institut, Omer was a Scholar in Residence at the Kulturwissenschaftliche Institut Essen, Germany in the “Culture and Climate” research stream. During his tenure in the Scholars in Residence program, he examined the use of various culturally embedded resources by communities in post-flood Pakistan to navigate the consequences of disasters and climate change. He also elaborated on the use of visual methods (photographs) as a critical research pedagogy to narrate the lives of communities disrupted by climate change and natural disasters.
    February,February 2016
    As you are aware, 2015 was a landmark year in international negotiations on both climate change adaptations and disaster risk reduction. In March 2015, international community adopted the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and in December 2015, the world came together in Paris to conclude the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The role of protection of environment as a key buffer against climate change and disaster risk reduction has been acknowledged in both the agreements. Also scientific community has increasingly identified clear linkages between sound environmental management and disaster risk reduction which also offer climate change mitigation and adaptation benefits. In this context, IUCN CEM YPN Co-Lead Dr. Shalini Dhyani, Scientist CSIR- National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (CSIR-NEERI) along with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP/DRR) organised a National Consultative Workshop in India on Ecosystem Based Approaches to Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation. The meeting brought together technical experts and policy makers from across India to review how the new opportunities offered by science and international policies could be leveraged to promote ecosystem based approaches in India. More information on the event are included in the drop box (Drop box for event details).

    The Academy is very stimulating and developing. I am looking forward to the next day.
    Day three
    The third day of the Forum and first day of the Forum Technical Sessions started with official introduction. Piet Wit and Steve Edwards (both from IUCN) introduced Forum's Vision. Ed Burrows gave very inspiring talk on the Red List of Ecosystems. While you may have heard of IUCN's flagship Red List of Endangered Species, you have to check the RLE ( http://www.iucnredlistofecosystems.org)
    The general introduction to the forum and its vision was followed by introduction to the forum themes. There were two streams "Governance of Ecosystems to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals" and "Governance of Ecosystems to Respond to Climate Change". I have participated in the second stream managed by Angela Andrade, the Deputy Chair of IUCN CEM. Angela introduced the topic and gave us idea of what the Roundtable Discussions are going to be. There where five separate roundtable discussions covering different topic whitin each stream. Each roundtable had three sessions (morning, afternoon, and the last session to be held tomorrow). First session focused on identifying issues, second on solutions to identified issues and the last will cover identifying priority actions.
    ...
    - Loss and Damage.
    We have also come up with several questions related to the above issues, however I will skip them here due to lack of space. We also agreed within the group that uncertainty is an issue that is common for all the above.Having identified the issues, we could start another roundtable discussion on solutions. We have considered every of the issues above and tried to come up with feasible and sustainable solutions and best practices. Again, I will skip it here due to lack of space. The second roundtable discussion was as fruitful and energetic as the first one. We've done a great team work. The second roundtable discussion was followed by the Armchair Conversations. After great introduction to the Red List of Ecosystems I have decided to learn more about this iconic project. The Armchair Conversation on RLE was given by Nik Murry from UNSW in Australia. Nik is one of the Future Leaders. Nik and his team in Australia have done amazing work developing the framework and practices for RLE. Again, I highly encourage you to read more on http://www.iucnredlistofecosystems.org. The database is constantly growing and by 2025 most of the ecosystems are going to be covered.Another archair conversatiin that I went to was facilitated by Philip Liwei Chen from Parks Canada. Liwei used his amazing skills to develop understanding and teamwork and to show us how to improve it. After second armchair session we headed to the bar to continue our team excersises...
