Toward Resilience: A Guide to Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation is an introductory resource for staff of development and humanitarian organizations working with people whose lives and rights are threatened by disasters and climate change.
It answers a burning/urgent question asked by humanitarian and development practitioners alike: how can we reduce disaster and climate change risk through our everyday work?
Introducing the basic concepts of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation, the guide identifies 10 basic principles for an integrated approach to building resilience and explains how to apply them in key sectors, with diverse populations, and in different contexts.
Case studies and a comprehensive tools and resources map provide easy-to-follow guidance for practitioners.
