Multi-Stakeholder Action to Mainstream DRR and Climate Adaptation
This project was based on the premise that policy actions happen not just because of the existence of a linear relationship between problems and their solutions but comes about in ‘windows of opportunity’ settings that occur when problems and solutions come together in a particular political environment that is not necessarily defined by the problems or solution.
Taking the examples of flash floods in Leh (2010) and Bramer (2006) districts in India, the project examined the policy positions adopted by district planners post disaster, and assessed the extent to which these integrate disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) concerns into long term recovery and development planning. integration.
A visual documentation of the research that was carried out in a village in Leh can be found in a photo essay.
Local community reporters were trained to communicate the climate and disaster risks facing communities.
The ways of incorporating traditional knowledge into post disaster recovery were studied, as part of an effort to integrate DRR and CCA – the results of which were written up in a book chapter on the subject.
The experiences and voices of local people in Leh and Bramer which tell of some of the challenges and opportunities of integration of DRR and CCA were documented in a project report.
The learning from the project was also consolidated into a CDKN document.
