This brochure is based on resources from the report “The Role of Environmental Management and Eco-engineering in Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation”

Environmental management has an important role to play in reducing many of the risks posed by natural disasters. Ecosystems act as natural, dynamic barriers that can help protect vulnerable communities from at least some of the impacts of climate change.

ProAct Network, with support from the Ministry of Environment, Finland, and in collaboration with the secretariat of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR), has undertaken a global survey to investigate both traditional and scientific experiences in the use of environmental management and ecosystems as natural buffers for climate-related extreme weather events.
