Description

It is the combination of structural vulnerability and lack of population preparedness that causes major disasters, not natural hazards themselves. As a result, climate change increases the vulnerability of local communities more exposed to climate risks, ecosystem degradation, reduced water and food availability, and livelihood changes. How can we ensure that communities, countries and regions have the prevention, mitigation, adaptation and response mechanisms in place to reduce the intensity of impacts and preserve livelihoods and development?
