Climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) are among the paramount goals of the UN sustainable development agenda, galvanised through major UN conferences and summits held over 2015. The ENHANCE project has contributed to achieving the goals of several new policy frameworks, such as: the UN Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on risk financing, and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change on climate adaptation.
The ENHANCE project has contributed to many of the objectives and goals of the new frameworks, in particular (i) better understanding of risk and evidence-based and risk-informed public policies; (ii) managing risk by means of partnering and horizontal and vertical cooperation between private and public entities; through (iii) high policy level targeted dissemination and outreach.
