The report – and a series of accompanying case studies – offers practical and proven approaches for environmental management and eco-engineering in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation, that can, in large, be tailored for different situations. This is important if the benefits of what this report highlights are to become shared and used more extensively. Planners and landscape managers must apply their experiences in broader settings, professionals engaged in disaster risk reduction need to converse more closely with climate change and environmental management professionals. Decision-makers too have a vital role to play in highlighting the many advantages that this avenue of easily applied science offers. Even donor organisations have a pivotal role to play in this context in the coming years as innovative means of financing initiatives relating to climate change adaptation and mitigation are increasingly being sought.
