Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation: Pathways for policy coherence in Sub-Saharan Africa

Source(s):  United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)

This report proposes an approach to assess the level of integration -limited, partial or substantial- of the two fields in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) policy documents in sub-Saharan Africa. Strategic, conceptual, institutional, operational and financial aspects are analyzed in DRR and CCA strategies from thirty-two (32) countries in the region out of the 44 countries covered by the UNDRR Regional Office for Africa (ROA).

The below recommendations are aimed at governments and implementing partners who support DRR and CCA at regional and national levels for achieving policy coherence (p. 9-10):

  1. Develop common grounds for understanding risks to inform policy-making;
  2. Establish a strong governance system to achieve long-term resilience;
  3. Increase investment and budget support for DRR and CCA;
  4. Clarify roles for preparedness and enhance adaptation for building back.
