ISDR urges more climate change action

Last week in Nairobi, government representatives and experts agreed on a five-year programme to establish how best to adapt to climate changes. A key element will be to explore the use of disaster reduction methods to cope with extreme conditions like floods and drought. The ISDR will be partnering with the Climate Convention secretariat in this initiative that will help reduce flood losses in the future. More governments committed to the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action are also taking measures that will contribute to reduce flood impacts.
