This webinar aims to provide an overview of the comprehensive climate and disaster risk management (CRM) and to introduce a course to capacitate participants on CRM that will take place in 2022.
The CRM aims to strengthen synergies between disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation, identifying mutually beneficial opportunities across policies and programmes and enhancing the capacity of governments for cross-sectoral planning while ensuring vertical alignment. In collaboration with partners, UNDRR has developed a set of guidance and a training package to help integrate climate considerations into disaster risk reduction strategies, and to risk-inform National Adaptation Plans, with the ultimate aim to help Member States develop and implement fully integrated climate and disaster risk management plans and policies.
