Water and risk: developing sustainable and resilient communities


This policy report makes the case for Sweden taking a leadership role in promoting a more proactive approach to disaster risk reduction in national and international policy, and making resilience-building an integral part of development. It argues that in order to stop creating new risks, disaster risk reduction (DRR) must become an integral part of development, not a separate add-on. The policy report emphasizes that role of Sweden as an important international partner in DRR and resilience activities, originating from its strong history of donor support and long engagement in DRR enables timely Swedish contributions to the increasing global debate on the need to build resilience to multiple risks, including small-scale and slow-onset disasters, violent conflict, uncontrolled urbanisation, rising consumption, environmental degradation and climate change.
