Towards 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
This study aimed to explore the existing body of knowledge with regards to resilient techniques in water supply where water availability is limited – in particular drought-prone areas – and to prepare the technical basis for the evaluation of WASH projects developed in areas that are (potentially) exposed to drought.The work is intended for program managers and technical staff, involved in the design and implementation of WASH programs in drought affected areas.
A in-depth guideline developed with support from UNICEF on the integration of Disaster Risk Reduction into WASH in emergencies.
