International Recovery Platform

At the Crossroads, Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Asia and the Pacific

The report hopes to contribute to improved regional planning and programming for DRR and CCA, and highlights areas for cooperation among regional and sub‐regional organizations. It also aims to support both national and regional stakeholders in DRR and CCA, such as governments, UN agencies, intergovernmental organizations, research and technical organizations, nongovernment organizations, and especially the ISDR Asia Partnership on Disaster Reduction (IAP) members, in order to enhance regional planning, programming, and cooperation.


DRR and Climate Change

This report has been prepared as an initial
step to shed light on the lacuna. It provides
a snapshot of how DRR and CCA are undertaken
and integrated, if at all, in the region.
It does so by taking stock of past and ongoing
regional initiatives (Chapter 2) and by
looking into the role of certain organizations
in the implementation process (Chapter
3). It also discusses key developments in
three areas—political, policy and institutional—
which are instrumental in facilitating
the integration of DRR and CCA agendas
in the region (Chapter 4). Concluding remarks
and next steps to push the integration
forward are presented in the last section
(Chapter 5).
