Climate Smart Disaster Risk Management

Published on 1 January 2010

This publication is part of the Strengthening Climate Resilience Discussion Series which aims to elaborate concepts and application of the Climate Smart Disaster Risk Management (CSDRM) approach. The CSDRM approach is a legitimate first step in adapting to climate change and climate variability, will help ensure DRM investments are durable and value-for-money, and offers practical guidance at both national and local scales to deal with new and evolving threats.
