Linking Climate Change Adaptation, Disaster Risk Reduction, and Loss & Damage

The Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) has successfully completed a range of projects on climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, and loss & damage (CCA-DRR-L&D). Outputs and learnings of these projects can be beneficial for the global agendas of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction and strenghten synthesis between climate action and disaster risk reduction at the global level, focusing on the concept of "adaptive recovery."

This joint project between APN and SLYCAN Trust will collect manuscript of APN's completed CCA-DRR-L&D projects (climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and loss & damage) and compile them into a special issue in collaboration with a reputed journalist or academic publisher to highlight linkages between climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, and loss & damage. As part of this activity, an International Symposium on Linking Climate Change Adaptation, Disaster Risk Reduction, and Loss and Damage will be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka, with all project leaders engaged in the special issue presenting on their work.
