Abstract. Reducing natural hazard risks and adapting to climate change are ever more important policy goals. Sound climate risk management will lessen the impacts of disaster risks and contribute to boosting resilience. Climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction have to some extent been mainstreamed into international and national policies but it is important to ensure that the resulting efforts are consistent and mutually supportive. The EEA report »Climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction in Europe: enhancing coherence of the knowledge base, policies and practices« identifies several ways how the coherence between CCA and DRR can be promoted.

Short summary
Climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction are important and complementary policy goals. However, public policies, methods and practices across both policy domains often lack coherence, and opportunities are not fully exploited to build up resilience. We have identified cases and principles that hold potential for promoting coherence through sharing knowledge, closer collaboration between existing science and policy platforms and networks, and better use of financial resources.
