Partner German Committee for Disaster Reduction (DKKV)

Date of submission 19/09/2011


Action Pledge 2

The study adopts an approach which prioritises tools and methods of disaster risk reduction, such as (i) risk and vulnerability assessment methods and tools, (ii) early warning and preparedness strategies for the so-called "last-mile", and (iii) framework conditions that need to be improved to foster effective synergies between Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA). Structural aspects at national level are addressed and the potential of existing National Platforms for disaster risk reduction is discussed. Also concrete recommendations on necessary framework conditions are provided, for example anchoring adaptation and risk reduction projects in bilateral and multilateral agreements as a precondition for funding.
