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

June 06, 2016

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 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 risk 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 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.
Contents and structure of the guide 
Chapter 1 explains the evolution of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation and the rationale for an integrated approach to building resilience. It presents 10 principles for effective programming and advocacy, based on extensive research and practice. 
Chapter 2 describes the impacts of disaster and climate change risk on children, women and men, and high-risk populations: people living with disabilities, people living with chronic diseases, older people and indigenous peoples. It provides a checklist for promoting the participation of key groups in risk analysis and actions to build resilience. 
Chapter 3 explains program cycle management for interventions to reduce disaster and climate change risk. It includes key issues and steps to follow at each stage INTRODUCTION viii Toward Resilience of the program cycle, and guidance for knowledge generation and management throughout. 
Chapter 4 highlights the need to incorporate measures to reduce disaster and climate change risk in the main sectors of developmental and humanitarian intervention: food security; livelihoods; natural resource management; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); education; health; and protection. It provides guidance on how to apply the principles for effective programming and advocacy to build resilience in each sector. 
Chapter 5 explains the value of incorporating measures to reduce disaster and climate change risk in interventions in four challenging contexts for development and humanitarian work: conflict settings; early recovery; urban environments; and slow-onset disasters. It provides guidance on how to apply the principles for effective programming and advocacy to build resilience in each context. 
Chapter 6 describes the importance of governance and advocacy for the creation of an enabling environment for resilience-building. It provides guidance on how to apply the principles for effective interventions in these closely-related areas of work. Each of the above chapters includes case studies from practitioners’ experiences to illustrate examples of program activities, good practices and lessons learned. 
Finally, a tools and resources section guides practitioners to relevant material to use according to their specific needs. Toward Resilience: A Guide to Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation is available in a handbook form, and at www.ecbproject.org
