Toward Resilience: A Guide to Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation is an introductory resource for staff of development and humanitarian organizations working with people whose lives and rights are threatened by disasters and climate change.
The guide provides essential introductory information, principles of effective prac- tice, 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 risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
The guide is also a useful resource for other stakeholders, including staff from lo- cal, district and national government offices, the United Nations, donors, as well as social and natural scientists.
Toward Resilience is not intended to replace individual organizations’ policies or guidelines for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation; rather, it seeks to foster complementary practices and coordination between multiple actors working towards a common goal.
