MIRAI 2.0 R&I Week 2023 

Understanding climate change adaptation and disaster management together

Climate change; adaptation; disaster management 
Short workshop abstract:
Climate change adaptation and disaster management are strongly related. Climate change will lead to a higher incidence of extreme weather, for which all areas of disaster management are relevant, from preparedness to response. It is also particularly important to consider adaptation and climate risk as a part of disaster management. This workshop will discuss the state of integration of adaptation and disaster management, both in relation to each other and in relation to national to local systems in Sweden and Japan. We invite overarching presentations on the theme as well as presentation on either of the two areas or countries that reflect on how to reach a higher integration between areas and also organisationally in each national case.
