Climate and disaster risks
A Step Towards Resilience is a compilation of inspiring stories from the disaster-prone Somali Region of Ethiopia. Wetlands International worked with partners Netherlands Red Cross, Ethiopia Red Cross Society and Red Cross Climate Centre to build the long-term resilience of local communities to withstand recurring food and water insecurity, droughts and flash floods. It showcases integrated approaches, linking disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaptation (CCA), and ecosystem management and restoration (EMR), to address the underlying problems degrading the landscape and causing disasters.
