Integrating Disaster Risk Management into Climate Change Adaptation promotes the adoption of a risk management approach to climate-sensitive decision-making and serves as a reference to integrate DRM with climate change adaptation (CCA). It guides the reader on how to contribute to CCA by improving the management of climate extremes.
The handbook specifically addresses those DRM practitioners who sit within the National Disaster Management Agency; or line agencies and local governments and have the designated responsibility for DRM.
