The “ecosystem approach” is a strategy for integrated management of land, water and living resources that promotes conservation and sustainable use in an equitable way. Meeting people’s needs is a central element of the ecosystem approach that aims to: i) maintain ecosystem functions and services; ii) enhance equitable sharing of benefits; iii) promote adaptive management strategies; iv) implement management actions through decentralization; v) foster inter-sectoral  and inter-disciplinary cooperation.

As a global thematic platform of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR), PEDRR seeks to promote and scale-up implementation of ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and ensure it is mainstreamed in development planning at global, national and local levels, in line with the Hyogo Framework for Action. It is an inter-disciplinary learning which can reduce traction time from planning to on-the-ground implementation and help countries prioritise DRR objectives in water work.
