The Maldives held a national workshop, with support from UNDRR, to kick-start developing an integrated disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation strategy. The strategy will offer a common basis for implementation across sectors and levels.
In order to call for greater political attention on the increase of climate-related disasters in Europe and globally ahead of the COP27, the UN and EP held an exchange with policy-makers and resilience experts to craft recommendations for the way forward.
This contributing paper presents an extension of the INFORM Risk Index, a global indicator-based disaster risk assessment tool, using projections of exposure to climate change hazards to provide better insights for policymakers.
UNDRR dedicates significant attention to water-related risks and challenges. The Sendai Framework systemically addresses disaster risk and promotes national and local DRR strategies that account for multi-hazard risks, including those related to water.
This contributing paper reviews the governance of systemic risk with the aim to identify opportunities and enabling factors for improving governance by managing what are increasingly interdependent risks with the potential for cascading impacts.
This contributing paper looks into the use of disaster science in policy making for urban systems, where major risks need to be managed by bringing together emergency management, organisational resilience and climate change adaptation.
This contributing paper discusses the relevance of the methods and case studies in informing global, national and local policymakers and decision-makers who are involved in understanding climate risks and adaptation needs for infrastructures.
This mixed methods study includes a review of the literature on current adaptive capacity indexes and compared the findings with the obstacles and determinants of adaptive capacity and climate change adaptation found in a Ghana pilot case study.
This contributing paper presents a mapping tool that connects the seven World Meteorological Organization (WMO) state of the climate indicators to climate change impacts and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
