Opis: Managing Adaptation to Climate Risk - Geoff O'Brien, Phil O'Keefe

Climate change is the single largest threat to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and sustainable development. Addressing climate risk is a challenge for all. This book calls for greater collaboration between climate communities and disaster development communities. In discussing this, the book will evaluate the approaches used by each community to reduce the adverse effects of climate change. One area that offers some promise for bringing together these communities is through the concept of resilience. This term is increasingly used in each community to describe a process that embeds capacity to respond to and cope with disruptive events. This emphasizes an approach that is more focused on pre-event planning and using strategies to build resilience to hazards in an adaptation framework. The book will conclude by evaluating the scope for a holistic approach where these communities can effectively contribute to building communities that are resilient to climate driven risks.Introduction 1. The Sustainability Problem 2. The Climate Journey 3. Climate Extremes - Does a Post-normal Approach Make Sense? 4. Disaster Management 5. Adaptation 6. The Concept of Resilience 7. Development 8.
