Key messages on integrating cross-cutting issues in the NAPS: risk management, gender and indigenous peoples1. Integration of risk reduction measures in the PNACC
Globally, disasters are increasingly causing impacts on livelihoods and ecosystems. Climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) are interrelated in many ways, and the issue of coordination, integration and synergies between the two approaches has been at the forefront of international discussions in recent years. The integration of DRR with CCA is now recognized worldwide as a vital action for sustainable development and has been promoted by several international agendas as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the results of Rio + 20 and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
