Integration, cooperation and collaboration between actors and organisations working on CCA and DRR is crucial in order to link the Paris Agreement, 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sendai Framework. A recent workshop held by PLACARD’s (PLAtform for Climate Adaptation and Risk reDuction) aimed to support and boost these institutional strengthening efforts.
The workshop results – Vision 2030 and the way forward – will be used to support integration and mainstreaming of CCA & DRR into policy, institutional arrangements and practice.
Workshop results in a nutshell
Reaching the vision 2030 of a good integration of CCA and DRR in the short-, mid- and long-term:
- Enhancing coherence between CCA & DRR brings benefits
- Climate Risk Management (CRM) plays a significant role in bringing CCA & DRR together
- Shared risk governance is a critical part of successful cooperation and collaboration, coherence and integration
- A project or consortium can actively connect organisations, institutions, and CCA and DRR actors
- Citizens and local knowledge play an important role in participatory governance formats
- Roles and responsibilities of communities and citizens must be well represented in CRM
- Platforms, portals and hubs are vital for sharing knowledge, showcasing good practices, and visibility
- Developing shared or common indicators for monitoring, reporting and evaluation (MRE) is an opportunity to collect useful loss data
- National Risk Assessments must better reflect climate change impacts and trends in their revision cycles
- DRR strategies need to take CCA into account
- Critical national / EU infrastructure must be resilient to long-term trends in climate-related risks.
