Solutions for the new reality
Climate change is leading to increasingly frequent and more severe hazards and disasters. Poor people are the most vulnerable and hardest hit.
We’re helping to make resilience a way of life, by advising people on how to adapt their lives to a changing climate and put plans and systems in place to predict disasters and minimise their impact.
And we’re contributing to joint efforts to promote environmentally sound technologies for low carbon and climate resilient development.
The people who pollute the least are the most affected by climate change. We’re helping poor communities make climate resilience a way of life.
An introductory resource for development and humanitarian practitioners working with populations at risk of disasters and other impacts of climate change. This book is a core resource developed as part of the Emergency Capacity Building (ECB) project.
