Changing climate, changing disasters: pathways to integration

Changing climate, changing disasters: pathways to integration (and accompanying policy brief) is an essential step-by-step guide for more joined-up thinking and action in disaster risk management, especially for sudden and slow-onset disasters exacerbated by climate change. It supports disaster risk practitioners to:

  • connect with colleagues in development and climate change adaptation by creating a shared ‘language’ of resilience

  • assess existing (or develop new) organisations, policies or programmes and build partner networks to fill capacity gaps

  • learn lessons and understand what ‘climate smart’ looks like in different contexts (such as conflict affected areas)

  • use climate smart indicators and follow integration pathways that deepen existing ways of working

  • empower affected communities to learn and reflect by including them in discussions about their concerns, vulnerabilities and risks.
