Strengthening Climate Resilience Discussion Paper;No.2

Assessing Progress on Integrating Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation in Development Processes

Published on 1 September 2010

Climate change threatens development and the progress needed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. In managing such risks to development, there is a significant overlap of concepts and shared goals between disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) coordinating mechanisms. Since 2008, the momentum toward convergence has grown and analysis in this 2010 assessment indicates pockets and trajectories of integration that promise improved development outcomes. However, it also demonstrates continued separation of DRR, CCA and development in some geographic areas and significant structural barriers to convergence in critical institutions at different scales
