In 20 17 nearly 100 million people were directly affected by natural disasters\, 78% of which resulted from floods\, storms\, or drought. While water is o ften the instrument of disaster\, it is also a key to resilience in the fa ce of climate change and essential to sustainable development\, peace\, se curity\, and economic well-being. At World Water Week 2018\, we featured p ractitioners working in diverse geographies and across a range of sectors and scales to improve community Climate Change Adaptation and DRR. Practit ioners understand adapting to increased climate variability means managing new and shifting natural hazard risks and seeking solutions at the local\ , national and transboundary levels. They emphasised that DRR pathways nee d to promote resilience that underscores self-reliance. At the global poli cy level\, the UNFCCC’\;s Adaptation Committee recently released a te chnical paper linking climate adaptation and DRR\, alongside a new 3-year workplan that includes activities around improving these connections. UNIS DR has long recognised that climate change is a key driver of disaster. Wh at remains less evident are mechanisms to link these policy communities. T his interactive session will demonstrate innovative ways that water can se rve as an effective\, necessary bridge between the two by aligning policy and practice at all levels.
