Toward Resilience: A Guide to Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation

Toward Resilience: A Guide to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) is an introductory resource for staff of development and humanitarian organizations working with people whose live and rights are threatened by disasters and climate change. The guide provides essential introductory information, principals of effective practice, guidelines for action in a range of sectors and settings, case studies and links to useful tools and resources, for the application of an integrated, rights-based approach to disaster reduction and climate change adaptation. The guide is also a useful resource for other stakeholders, including staff from local, district and national government offices, the United Nations, donors, as well as social and natural scientists. Toward Resilience is also available as a free PDF in French and Spanish and to buy in English from Practical Action. Generous donors made the guide development possible, including contributions from Catholic Relief Services, Save the Children, Mercy Corps, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID’s Office of US Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), the Directorate General for Humanitarian Aid & Civil Protection (ECHO), and Fidelity Charitable Trustees’ Philanthropy Fund.
