Risk-informed development: A strategy tool for integrating disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into development
This strategy tool addresses repeated calls for practical guidance on integrating both disaster and climate related risks into development, and an approach that helps overcome policy siloes and fosters joined-up implementation and localization. It is a contribution to risk-informing the 2030 Agenda and risk-proofing development investments in UNDP programme countries. The tool emphasized the importance to establish links to other types of risks, thus acknowledging the multi-dimensionality of risk. It is a joint GPN knowledge product of the Crisis Bureau (CB) and the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS).
The results of successful disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaption (CAA) mainstream efforts are discussed at the end of the paper. The paper identifies potential outputs and outcomes resulting from support for each of the mainstreaming components and subcomponents, and shares examples of how the tool will support more cohesive, integrated mainstreaming of both DRR and CCA.
