Integrating CCA, DRR and L+D to Address Emerging Challenges due to Slow Onset Processes

This trans-disciplinary research project involves 6 countries i.e. (1) Malaysia, (2) Vietnam, (3) The Philippines, (4) Myanmar, and (5) Cambodia, with expertise from (6) Japan. The project objectives are to: (i) identify characteristics, priorities and emerging issues related to slow onset processes in low-lying coastal areas, floodplains and highlands of Southeast Asia that impacts the livelihood and well-being of the communities therein; (ii) assess limits to adaptation based on the “best available science” and propose risk based approaches that integrate CCA and DRR; (iii) develop methodologies to evaluate prospective L+D (both economic and non-economic) associated with adverse and cascading impacts of climate change drawing on lessons from disaster risk management, and discerning natural and anthropogenic causes of climate change; and (iv) recommend policy and planning strategies to integrate CCA, DRR and L+D in development plans in line with existing governance systems.
