SDGs, DRR and CCA: Potential for strengthening inter-linkages

Source(s):  Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES)

This policy brief identifies approaches that could help achieve better synergies in implementation of these frameworks on the ground via programmatic integration, collaboration, capacity and innovation.

The document's key messages are the following:

  • Coordinated response is needed from all relevant stakeholders to maximise implementation on the ground of the three major global frameworks dedicated to sustainable development (SD), disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA).
  • DRR and CCA should be linked by strengthening national and local level adaptation planning and implementation. Loss and damage can provide ample opportunities for this to take place.
  • DRR and CCA can assist in economic development objectives of most developing and least developed countries without compromising environmental integrity or increasing disaster risk.
  • Focal Points at national and sub-national levels could mainstream and monitor progress of indicators and targets in the three frameworks, as well as ensure convergence of the three frameworks.
