Strengthening climate resilience discussion paper 4
This case study looks across the the Flood Mitigation and Management Programme (FMMP) of the Mekong River Commission which provides a regional disaster risk management (DRM) programme through which to explore progress towards and opportunities for integrating climate change into disaster risk management at a regional level. It goes on to describe the Climate Smart Disaster Risk Management (CSDRM) approach being developed through the Strengthening Climate Resilience Consortium and used as an analytical framework to explore key components of the FMMP’s work, alongside the development of the MRC’s newly launched Climate Change Adaptation Initiative and efforts to integrate climate information into basin development planning. It provide lessons on opportunities and challenges for a more integrated approach to DRM at basinwide, regional or transboundary levels.
