This report is a summary of the existing legal/policy and science approaches to natural hazards and CCA. The report offers three perspectives: national, EU-wide, and global.
Legal/policy and science approaches play a key role in DRR as well as for CCA. Lega/policy and science approaches provide the necessary legal and scientific mandate for CCR and DRR initiatives to begin, proceed and succeed.
This report is an output of the ESPREssO project (Enhancing synergies for disaster prevention in the European Union) that aims to contribute to a new strategic vision for natural risk reduction and CCA, thereby opening new frontiers for research and policy making.
