Enhancing methods and tools of disaster risk reduction in the light of climate change:

This case study focused on the Seychelles aims to utilise established synergies and merge existing knowledge of different communities by integrating Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) into Climate Change adaptation (CCA). It identifies certain key areas where a close link between DRR and CCA should be addressed as a priority, particularly: (i) risk and vulnerability assessment methods and tools, (ii) early warning and preparedness strategies for the so-called "last-mile", and (iii) framework conditions that need to be improved to foster effective synergies between DRR and CCA. It also provides some concrete recommendations on necessary framework conditions, for example anchoring adaptation and risk reduction projects in bilateral and multilateral agreements as a precondition for funding.
