Working with partners across the main flood-affected countries in Europe and other areas of the world, the UNU Climate Resilience Initiative aims to share knowledge, shape policy, and drive action to better prepare for future extreme weather events.
Examining the impact area of different forms of disasters, they all expand or limit primarily within the boundary of watersheds, sub-watershed, or the catchment. Water remains at the core of both watersheds and disaster risk reduction.
The Planning Guide provides the rehabilitation and recovery framework, the rehabilitation planning process and plan structure, institutional arrangements for plan coordination, implementation mechanisms, and proposed monitoring and evaluation arrangements.
