Title Just Add Water for Resilience: From Climate Risk Assessments to National Climate Policies
Objective(s) To explore how bottom-up / inside out approaches to risk assessment can provide a more effective, synergistic approach to climate resilience, which can consider the special risks and opportunities associated with water hazards and water resilience
Abstract How we diagnose climate risk plays an important role in how we address those risks. Many organizations are only beginning to integrate climate risk assessment into project development cycles, while national climate planning staff often struggle to integrate ministries and policies through issues such as climate finance, NDCs, and NAPs. In this session we will present a series of cases that show how emerging methodologies in climate risk assessment, reduction, and integration policies can accelerate the adoption of water resilience across programs, communities, and policies. We will present three examples at distinct levels of governance to highlight the utility of so-called bottom risk assessment for cities, ministries, and national decision makers.
