Climate change – and the likely increase in disasters – threatens to block pathways out of poverty

CDG is investigating opportunities for integrating climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction at the national and sub-national level.

The programme seeks to identify governance options which could help to reduce climate and disaster risk to poor communities and keep development on track.

CDG is a collaborative research initiative aimed at supporting policy-makers and civil society organisations engaged in disaster and climate-resilient development at every scale.
