Climate proofing - zip file
An instrument for taking into consideration climate change
The methods presented here for climate proofing are designed to address the needs of Welthungerhilfe, but also includes know-how from other German and international organizations.
It is designed in such a way that it can be adopted by other
German non-governmental organisations or be used as a basis for their own approach.
Welthungerhilfe has commissioned the German Committee for Disaster Reduction (DKKV) with the task of drafting the climate proofing methods. The DKKV is the national platformfor disaster reduction in Germany within the framework of the International Strategy for DisasterReduction (UNISDR) of the United Nations. As a network used by its membersit has ensured the interdisciplinary exchange of information between government organisationsand
non-governmental organisations from the scientific community and those operating at a practical level on the issue of disaster reduction.
This creates the basis for a broad anchoring of the results of the climate proofing, which extends beyond the framework of individual organisations and institutions. Within the course of drafting the methods two inter-institutional meetings were organised in Bonn to discuss the methods with different actors. Further comments and proposals were gathered through written contributions or in phone conversations.
