CCA and DRR coherence pathways


The Agenda 2030 calls for enhanced policy coherence for sustainable development. By generating more efficient and effective preparedness, response and recovery processes while making more efficient use of financial and human resources, policy coherence among disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) practices can contribute to a more sustainable development.

These essential reads aim to enhance understanding of coherence and inform future policy planning and implementation support, towards more comprehensive and coherent DRR and CCA approaches.
