Our joint session at the Civil Protection Forum 2018 explored how best to bridge the gaps between CCA and DRR to improve prevention of disasters.
Fires can lead to the contamination of surface and groundwater resources with suspended sediments, metals, organic compounds and nutrients. Our policy brief highlights research gaps that could improve risk assessment and management.
This policy brief argues that technology can helps us to connect and share knowledge across the CCA and DRR communities, through semantic tagging and the forthcoming PLACARD Connectivity Hub.
Can we harness the power of hurricanes for good? Thomas Schinko from IIASA suggests that it’s an opportunity to switch from talking about climate risks to taking action.
Our 1.5 day workshop explored the development of climate services (CS) to support disaster risk reduction (DRR) in Europe.
Our annual CCA and DRR Coordination Agenda outlines our strategy for the coming year, based on the previous year’s discussions and interactions.
Elisa Calliari reports from COP23 in Bonn on the new global initiative to provide vulnerable nations with financial protection from climate risks.
Patrick Pringle asks if natural disasters are an opportunity for transformative change to systems rather than gradual or incremental steps.
Our two-day workshop explored how to use narratives to integrate the climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) communities, and help to enhance resilience to weather-related extreme events.
Join us for a workshop and reception to explore mechanisms to support and increase coordination and cooperation across CCA and DRR.
