This publication addresses climate change and disaster management issues in South Asia, and more particularly in India. It builds on the theme chosen by the National Institute of Disaster Management NIDM for the world environment day, "Safeguard the environment for disaster risk reduction," which reflects the pressing need for arresting environmental degradation and improving management of ecosystems and natural resources for achieving disaster risk reduction and adapting to climate risks.
It is intended to be used as a reference for the local policy makers and planners, and in general for people at large who try to concise on challenges, issues and solutions for climate change — adaptation and integration with disaster risk management. About us Disclaimer Copyright Sitemap.
Numerous methodologies are used worldwide for assessing the impact of climate change and disasters on vulnerable population groups. Nevertheless, those social vulnerability methodologies are not systematically integrated into the overall process of climate and disaster risk management. A number of issues and challenges arise in defining and mapping the socially vulnerable population within climate change adaptation and disaster risk assessment frameworks. The variety of parameters used to determine social vulnerability includes, but is not limited to, income disparity, gender, age, disability, language, literacy or family status.
However, personal characteristics can be linked to vulnerability, but not define it.tax-marusa.com/order/nidykuni/comment-installer-un-logiciel-espion-pour-telephone-portable.php
Climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction: issues and challenges
Group approach is widespread because it is easy to administer and use for targeting the population, but it largely ignores the internal heterogeneity of groups. Availability of data on social vulnerability i. IUCN is uniquely positioned to tackle the multi-dimensional issues behind disaster risks and works to prove the value of nature-based solutions to reduce them.
Its work integrates ecosystem management, livelihoods, community vulnerability, climate change adaptation and disaster management. It has global presence and particular expertise in areas highly relevant to the disaster risk reduction such as: forest, watershed, marine and coastal management, environmental governance and human rights as they relate to environmental issues. The challenge for IUCN is now to build partnerships and provide nature-based solutions for disaster risk reduction based on scientific evidence and socio-economic analysis that will guide its Members, global, regional and local decision-makers, donors and NGOs worldwide in developing and implementing the most effective strategies to build resilience to the impacts of climate change and reduce the frequency and severity of disasters.
Climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction
In addressing community vulnerability and resilience to disasters and climate change, IUCN recognizes that strong partnerships are needed between donors, governments, the private sector, local communities, IUCN Members and commissions and development and humanitarian agencies, as well as environmental authorities. Since , IUCN has been a member of the Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction PEDRR - a global partnership comprised of UN agencies, international and regional NGOs as well as specialist institutes that collectively aim to influence policy, enhance implementation and better coordinate efforts in environmental management for disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and sustainable livelihoods.
It promotes ecosystems management as the key strategy to reduce disaster risk, increase local resilience and adapt to a changing climate. PEDRR also seeks to engage with regional and national training institutions to incorporate ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction in ongoing training programmes. IUCN is working to enhance ecosystem management for disaster risk reduction at national and local scales around the world.
