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.
