The project will seek to identify possible DRR and CCA measures which could be developed for selected geographical areas-including prioritised interventions according to strategic policies and current available economic analysis of DRR and CCA investments and will inform future application of the Economics of Climate Adaptation framework. By achieving its objectives, the project contributes to both the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030) and the Sustainable Development Goals, specifically goals 8, 13, and 17.
