Topics discussed in this webinar are:

  1. Principles and importance of engaging governments and civil society for policy advocacy and movement building work for DRR;
  2. Methods for effectively scaling local DRR initiatives through policy advocacy and movement building;
  3. Practical tips and advice on how to start the policy advocacy process; and
