Policy brief: climate change adaptation and disaster risk management


What is the importance of complementing disaster risk management funds with climate change adaptation funds?

This brief advocates to fill the gap between climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction funding and identifies the synergies between the two approaches, as climate change adaptation policies are to be efficient only if built on existing disaster risk reduction efforts. It introduces the Special Climate Change Fund (SCCF) and demonstrates the eligibility of disaster risk reduction projects for climate change adaptation funding through their effectiveness in implementing climate change adaptation strategies.
