Ensuring Coordination in the Development and Implementation of National Risk Reduction Strategies and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs)
- David (firstname.lastname@example.org); Andy (email@example.com)
Putting climate and disaster risk management at the heart of development requires long term vision, political and stakeholder support, as well as governance capacity. Increasingly, disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) are integral to development approaches. Progress can be seen, for instance, in terms of institutional arrangements, assessments, and actual implementation of resilience building measures, including social and financial protection.
However, barriers remain, including the need for more capacity building support; the persistence of institutional silos; and challenges around data and planning and investment processes. The working session will showcase how a coordinated approach to the development and implementation of National DRR Strategies and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) can help build on progress and overcome challenges in terms of strengthening local and national resilience.
