These proceedings outline the outcomes and conclusions of the regional workshop addressing disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation, inlcuding: panel discussions on a) Governability and development planning, b) Risk reduction measures and climate change adaptation, c) Post-disaster recovery; a field visit to the landslide risk areas in Tegucigalpa City; round-tables on experiences and lessons corresponding to the three discussion panels that were carried out in the City of Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

The meeting stretched bonds between different public institutions, non-governmental organizations, and experts working in Latin America on disaster risk management and humanitarian assistance, with the purpose of finding key elements taken up as a basis to build an adaptive capacity towards climate change.

The Regional workshop on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in urban settings: from theory to practice took place 18-20 October 2011.
