Recent release: Climate Resilience in Development Planning: Experiences in Colombia and Ethiopia (22 April 2014). Climate-related disasters have inflicted increasingly high losses on developing countries, and with climate change, these losses are likely to worsen. Improving country resilience against climate risks is therefore vital for achieving poverty reduction and economic development goals. This report discusses the current state of knowledge on how to build climate resilience in developing countries, and builds on a growing volume of country experiences on building climate resilience into national development planning. Two country case studies, Ethiopia and Colombia, are discussed in detail. This was also informed by the Expert Workshop on Climate Resilience and Economic Growth in Developing Countries (2013).
