Session 38: Tuesday 19 June, 14:15–16:00
Diversity in application: Understanding how adaptation and disaster risk reduction are linked in different countries and regions
The occurrence of numerous extreme climate events, including cyclones, floods, and heat waves in the last two years, has reinforced the need for greater dialogue and action on synergising CCA and DRR. This session will explore the challenges and successes in improving coordination between these two spheres of endeavour drawing on cases from the global north and south. By highlighting different experiences from around the world, and encouraging contributions from a diversity of stakeholders, we aim to identify the key themes that have emerged in implementation, allowing participants to discuss these topics and learn from the cases.

Session 114: Tuesday 19 June 16:30–18:15
Creating new narratives for integrated approaches to CCA, DRR and transformation
Narratives play an important role in CCA, DRR and sustainable transformation. Narratives can change attitudes and behaviour when connected to beliefs and values. Narratives have the potential to encourage actions and collaboration.
The session’s objective is to explore with the participants the use of narratives to promote collaboration, to raise awareness, build capacity, and to share knowledge and experiences.
