Technical guidance on application of climate information for comprehensive risk management

These guidelines and tools provide the necessary know-how to develop and strengthen a policy basis for DRR and risk-informed development. The present guidance provides pathways for climate information that is scientifically sound and publicly available. Ultimately, by accessing the best available up-to- date climate information, planners, risk managers and decision makers will be empowered to develop their strategies and plans, taking into account multiple climate-related hazards at different levels of uncertainty.

This guidance concludes that information on climatic averages and statistics of variability for future periods is important for strategic decisions and those involving long-term commitments. Stakeholders should be aware of the limitations of climate change projections but still be informed by them in creating responsive DRR plans.
