From Vulnerability to Resilience:
For programming design: Based on field experience in Nepal
Promoting resilience in practice is an emerging development goal. However to operationalize the concepts of resilience is a challenge for many organizations. This handbook is an excellent guide book. It provides a simple, step-by-step guide to understand changing disaster risk and how to translate this into a set of possible actions for risk reduction. The handbook is based on the experiences of projects implemented by Project Action in Nepal. These projects have truly become examples for a climate-smart disaster risk management approach.
A new element of this V2R Guidance is climate change It. Incorporates climate data to identify possible adaptation options, alongside considering other risks and capacities. Climate change is given a prominence. Among other uncertain trends climate change is mainstreamed. Climate change impacts are not seen as a stand-alone issue to address. It gives the importance to livelihoods, hazards, and governance issues which interconnect and shape peoples’ lives.
The main goal of the V2R Guidance Note is to integrate climate change to resilience. It is essential that organizations working on poverty reduction take into account the impact of climate change on the communities and sectors where they are working.
