id21 highlights climate change, December 2008
There is significant overlap between the practice and theory of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. However, there is limited coherence and convergence in institutions, organisations and policy frameworks. Both struggle to be incorporated into regular development planning and this aspiration is slowed down by duplicated activities, ineffective use of resources and confusing policies.
This issue also includes:
- Adapting to flood risks in urban Africa
- Responding to the risks from climate-related disasters
- Linking climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction
