Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction

The category climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction is concerned with seeking to lower risks posed by the consequences of climatic change and increase agricultural producers’ resilience.

Under this category, you can find technologies and practices aiming at mitigating and adapting to climate change and natural hazards and disasters, including changing rainfall patterns, drought, floods, storms, landslides or wildfire and the geographical redistribution of pests and diseases. Practices that strengthen the resilience of agriculture and its people against natural hazards include the introduction of new varieties, specific constructions, crop diversification, alternative farming practices, among others.

Many, resilience-enhancing technologies and practices support social and community use of resources.

The climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction category covers the Sustainable Development Goals of no poverty, zero hunger, industry, innovation and infrastructure, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action, life below water as well as life on land.
