Job Description

Deadline for Submission: 31 August 2017

UNISDR-Africa has been engaging with African Youth to accelerate the implementation of the Sendai Framework in Africa. Our experience has shown that thought much work has been done by the youth, their work remains unknown to stakeholders outside the youth network. UNISDR seeks to document the good practices and lessons learned from youth engagement and activities in the field of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation through a publication. We are therefore inviting   youth groups or individuals to share articles that highlight their important DRR efforts within their field of work as a contribution to this publication.

Submission of articles can be done via the web link provided below which contains information on the format and deadline for receiving the articles which is 31 August 2017. Articles will be reviewed by an editorial board and UNISDR reserves the right to accept or reject the article based on the quality and other guiding principles for this publication.
