Disaster risk management and adaptation to climate change: experience from German development cooperation

Source(s):  Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)

This publication aims to pinpoint commonalities between disaster risk management and adaptation to climate change. It describes the experience gathered from German development cooperation’s work in seven countries, which we see as a stimulus to aim for more effective and efficient interaction between the two fields and to work towards a significant reduction of risk in our partner countries by implementing risk management measures adapted to the respective conditions.

It features the following experiences: (i) Establishing the first urban early-warning system in Mozambique; (ii) Early warning and its many benefits, taking Nicaragua as an example; (iii) Risk analysis as the starting point for disaster risk management and food security in the context of climate change in Sri Lanka; (iv) Protection of coastal zones in Viet Nam; (v) Adaptation of urban infrastructure for disaster risk management in the context of a decentralisation project in Ethiopia; (vi) Integration into public budgetary planning in Peru; and (vii) Study on micro-insurance for weather-related hazards in the Caribbean.
