The event will be hosted by the government of Tunisia in the city of Tunis, Republic of Tunisia.
The Platform will provide an opportunity for governments and all stakeholders to assess the progress and reaffirm commitment towards the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 in the two regions.

Framed within this event, Ms.Samar Taha (IUCN ROWA) will be presenting "Nature-based solutions: Using ecosystem-based approaches and mainstreaming in disaster risk reduction" where the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems will be introduced as both the basis for evaluating ecosystem status and a monitoring tool to evaluate the efficiency, effectiveness, and durability of NbS solutions.
