Disasters and Ecosystems: Resilience in a Changing Climate


Disasters have multiple impacts e.g., losses of lives, devastating impacts on infrastructure, damage to ecosystems and undermining development. On top of this, climate change is expected to aggravate existing disaster risks in many regions of the world. There is a need for increased awareness amongst practitioners, policymakers and researchers on the latest advances in disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA). 

The course was developed by the Centers for Natural Resources and Development (CNRD), UN Environment, with funding from TH Köln- Technical University of Cologne, UN Environment, Eye on Earth Programme, and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the EXCEED programme and DAAD, with support by the Partnership for Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction (PEDRR), the European Union (EU) and the SERVIR-Mekong program.
