Regional Workshop on Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation in Urban Settings: From Theory to Practice

The global concerns in regards to climate change, and hydro-meteorological disasters has risen, among other reasons, due to devastating consequences over massive floods around he world over the past few years, particularly in Asia and Latin America. These concerns could be due to the growing influence that rhetoric is having in the design and implementation of national development policies, and the difficulties faced by governments to prevent disasters, mitigating consequences and damage restoration. This way, national governments, and to a less extent local ones, have built capacities to reinforce civic protection systems with the intention of transforming them into real prevention systems, and which would have the reduction of risks as an objective on one hand, and on another hand, having designs and strategies for climate change under programmes as well as mitigation and adaptation actions.
