We have some great news to share with you. During the recent 7th Global Platform on DRR the UN Special Representative to ISDR, Mr Robert Glsser, agreed on institutionalising youth engagement within ISDR. This is the first time in history this happens; a UN institution institutionalising youth as a result of a 100% youth-led process. Congratulation, you have all done a great job! When working as a collective, no action is too small to go unrecognised.
During the GPDRR Ignite stage the launching of the UNISDR Youth Engagement Platform took place. The two youth representatives Imra and Crystal was joined by the ISDR Regional Director of Americas, Richard, and the UNFPA Deputy Director Natalia.
