This policy brief highlights some of the key findings of a study that reviewed the links between Food Security (FS), Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) within the southern Africa policy and institutional environment. The full study will be released as a Network Paper in October, 2012.
The study clarifies the interface between FS, CC and DRR and advocates for integrated policies and programming around this nexus. It encourages a paradigm shift in thinking between development and emergency to effectively build the resilience of agriculture systems and livelihoods to reduce the risk of disaster.
