This case study, integrating climate change concerns into disaster management planning in Gorakhpur, one of the most flood-prone districts India, describes how the programme implemented by START and CDKN is currently addressing many of the climate change, disaster risk management, affects on livelihood and property damage issues in Gorakhpur. It looks at how the programme was developed, what factors have contributed to its success, and evaluates how a climate-mainstreaming programme such as Gorakhpur’s might inspire other local governments in a similar position.

This report emphasizes that the District Disaster Management Plans can be an effective mechanism 
for promoting climate-sensitive planning at district level. At the same time, integrating climate concerns in District Disaster Management Plans requires proper facilitation of the Shared Learning process with various departments at district level using the Climate Resilience Framework.
