Building resillience to climate change (book)

Managing Adaptation to Climate Change

Climate change is the largest threat to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals and sustainable development. This book calls for greater collaboration between climate communities and disaster development communities. One area that offers some promise for bringing together these communities is through the concept of resilience. This term is increasingly used in each community to describe a process that embeds capacity to respond to and cope with disruptive events. This emphasizes an approach that is more focused on pre-event planning and using strategies to build resilience to hazards in an adaptation framework. The book will conclude by evaluating the scope for a holistic approach where these communities can effectively contribute to building communities that are resilient to climate driven risks.
