Abstract

The priorities of disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) agendas both include reducing vulnerability and enhancing resilience. Thus, it is crucial to link DRR and CCA to benefit simultaneously from risk reduction and adaptation measures. The article provides conceptual frameworks that could be useful for better understanding and promoting the integration of DRR and CCA by linking these approaches to accelerate risk reduction and adaptation measures at all levels (global, regional, national and local). This linkage could be an important basis for discussion in climate negotiations regarding the allocation of funds needed for tackling climate change, especially in developing countries. This article also identifies common features and practices for DRR and CCA in several sectors and documents the growing acknowledgment and affirmation of the need to integrate DRR and CCA into development policy and planning.
