Title: Reducing Disaster Risks to Food Security in Southern Africa: Towards Integration and Co-operation
Authors: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: This policy brief highlights some of the key findings of a study that reviewed the links between Food Security (FS), Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA), within the southern Africa policy and institutional environment. The study clarifies the interface between FS, CC and DRR and advocates for integrated policies and programming around this nexus, identifies gaps and opportunities in policy frameworks and institutional platforms and encourages a paradigm shift in thinking between development and emergency, to be able to effectively build the resilience of agriculture systems and livelihoods to reduce risk of disaster.
