Establishing links between disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in the context of loss and damage: policies and approaches in Bangladesh

The overarching aim of this paper is to examine the challenges of addressing loss and damage through national institutional arrangements that integrate disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) in Bangladesh. As DRR and CCA share many aims and methodologies, greater synthesis and coordination between these two fields will help to eliminate redundancy, increase cost effectiveness and leverage the respective advantages of each.
