This publication explores the role of ecosystems and the environment in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and proposes a range of actions focused on integrated environmental and natural resource management approaches to disaster risk reduction, such as:

assessing disaster risks, vulnerability, capacity, exposure, hazard characteristics and their possible sequential effects on ecosystems at the relevant socila and spatial scale;
mainstreaning disaster risk assessments, mapping and management into rural development planning and management of various ecosystems;
integrating DRR in global, regional and national policies related to environment, natural resource management and biodiversity.
The publication also highlights key issues that require further attention:

the need for mainstreaming Eco-Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)/Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) as part of risk-informed, sustainable development;
the promotion of Eco-DRR/CCA in disaster preparedness, response, recovery and reconstruction;
increased attention for integrated water and wetland management to reduce disaster risk;
the need for all-of-society engagement, with emphasis on community participation;
tracking progress on local, national and global environment efforts to reduce risks
