Harnessing Synergies: Mainstreaming Climate Change Adaptation in Disaster Risk Reduction Programmes and Policies

Published on 1 January 2011

A new report from the Institute of Development Studies and ActionAid provides practical tips, advice and guidance on the process of mainstreaming climate change adaptation (CCA) into disaster risk reduction (DRR).

Written primarily for practitioners, policymakers, programme staff and management working in the DRR sector, Harnessing Synergies draws on the insight and experience of over 100 disaster risk managers from across Africa and Asia. It aims to provide practical recommendations for creating an environment where the mainstreaming of CCA into DRR can flourish.
