Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaption (CCA) in International Cooperation

"Preventing and overcoming crises, conflicts and catastrophes" has become a strategic priority of Switzerland’s International Cooperation. In light of this, PLANAT was commissioned to provide an overview of Swiss expertise in the area of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA). The primary objective of this landscape study was to identify institutions that could contribute to putting the aforementioned strategy into practice.

 

This briefing report outlines key findings of the PLANAT Landscape Study. The list and profiles of the institutions illustrate the diversity of Swiss expertise in the fields of DRR and CCA; a map of the world shows where this expertise is applied in the context of international cooperation.
