Holistic management of disaster risk requires action to reduce impacts of extreme events before, during and after they occur, including technical preventive measures and aspects of socio-economic development designed to reduce human vulnerability to hazards. Approaches toward the management of climate change impacts must also consider the reduction of human vulnerability under changing levels of risk. A key challenge and opportunity therefore lies in building a bridge between current disaster risk management efforts aimed at reducing vulnerabilities to extreme events and efforts to promote climate change adaptation.

This Short Course will consider how building greater policy coherence between disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation can contribute to advancing sustainable development. Linkages between DRR and climate change adaptation will be explored through the dimensions of policy, innovation, and practice.

Up to 25 Participants will be selected from South Asia and Mongolia to participate in this regional Short Course. Delivery of the in-Australia component is expected in March 2023.
