SpringerLink ebooks - Business and Economics (2013)Summary: Annotation There has been some degree of reluctance in the past to consider disaster risk management within the mainstream of adaptation to climate variability and climate change. However, there is now wide recognition of the need to incorporate disaster risk management concerns in dealing with such phenomena. There is also a growing awareness of the necessity for a multi-sectoral approach in managing the effects of climate variability and climate change, since this can lead to a significant reduction of risk. This book presents the latest findings from scientific research on climate variation, climate changeand their linkswith disasterrisk management.It showcasesprojects and other initiatives in this field that are being undertaken in both industrialised and developingcountries, by universities and scientific institutions, governmentbodies, national and internationalagencies,NGOs and other stakeholders.Finally, itdiscussescurrent and future challenges, identifyingopportunities and highlightingthe still unrealisedpotentialfor promotingbetter understandingof the connections betweenclimate variation, climate changeand disaster risk managementworldwide.
