Source(s): United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) agreed at its 30th session in Antalya, Turkey, 21-23 April, to undertake the preparation of a special report entitled "Management of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation", which was proposed by the UNISDR, on behalf of the ISDR partnership, and the Government of Norway. The IPCC special report will feature nine chapters including one dedicated to case studies and three to assessing risk management policies and practices at community, national and international levels. The draft outline of the report was developed at a scoping workshop hosted by Norway in Oslo and contained in the report of the workshop. The IPCC will produce the report in collaboration with the secretariat of the UNISDR, which will facilitate access to information from the disaster risk reduction community.
