Abstract

Climate change related extreme events such as floods have been and will continue to present a great challenge to disaster risk management. With the projected increase in frequency and scale of future climate extremes, there is a pressing need to develop effective strategies to reduce risk and vulnerabilities to floods, particularly in the context of urban settings in developing countries faced with rapid urbanization and a range of social and environmental threats. To deal with climate change and urban flood risks, a large body of research urges urban community resilience building. To this end, literature also highlights the importance of integrating the efforts of disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA). DRR and CCA represent two different fields with complimentary sets of expertise and policy goals. The former deals with ongoing operational issues of disasters and the latter with making changes to deal with emerging issues associated with climate change. Many authors have argued that collaboration or partnership between DRR and CCA will improve the robustness of strategy particularly to deal with uncertainties into the future. Despite this, in practice, partnership building between the two is difficult and in most cases the two are working in silos.
