Stockholm plan of action for integrating disaster risks and climate change impacts in poverty reduction

This paper outlines the priority actions on the need to integrate natural hazard and climate change risks in a more effective way into national development strategies including poverty reduction strategies endorsed by over 200 participants representing national governments, bilateral and multilateral agencies, civil society organizations, experts and researchers gathered in Stockholm in October 2007.

Participants outlined the challenges and described the successes and benefits of integrating disaster and climate change risk into poverty reduction strategies, with strong emphasis on regional, national and local context. The presentations highlighted the fact that while the global agenda is now strongly driven by climate change; national concerns are grounded in current disaster events and climate variability.
