We are pleased to invite you to participate in an online discussion (e-Discussion) to help develop an integrated framework for mainstreaming both disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) into development. The e-Discussion will be held in three phases from 29 March to 10 June 2016.
The purpose of this e-Discussion is to engage stakeholder groups, experts, practitioners and policy-makers across the globe in a dialogue to capture experiences and feedback to guide the development of an integrated DRR-CCA mainstreaming framework. This will be a practical tool to help governments at all levels operationalise the mainstreaming of climate change and disaster risk reduction into development policy, plans, projects, budgets, monitoring and evaluation. It will build upon existing guidelines or frameworks prepared separately for mainstreaming either CCA or DRR, but will provide an integrated approach to support collaboration, reduce duplication of effort and promote efficient and effective mainstreaming.
