Resolutions and reports adopted at the international level in the last few years provide that a more consistent and sustainable alignment between climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) is today considered a global priority. This literature review offers a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of existing knowledge on the topic and looks into an array of potential avenues for solutions from the literature that could be relevant for law and policy at the national and sub-national, as reported in the literature.

This literature review was undertaken by IRC-MSCA CAROLINE Research fellow Dr. Tommaso Natoli (UCC-IFRC) in the course of his secondment to the IFRC Disaster Law Programme. It is part of the Research Project “Leave No One Behind Developing Climate-Smart/Disaster Risk Management Laws that Protect People in Vulnerable Situations for a Comprehensive Implementation of the UN Agenda 2030”.
