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.
Foresight can be a valuable tool in both climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, as well a useful method to integrate the two approaches.
A brief to highlight the complex nature of environmental challenges and make recommendations for the integration of ecosystem-based approaches within CCA and DRR science, policy and practice.
