Description

Abstract:

One of five summary briefs for decision-makers, produced from the outcomes of the "Lessons for Future Action" conference: access to key insights, lessons learned, good practice and the gaps and needs for future action.

Generally capacity building is understood to encompass knowledge / information capacity, human / social capacity and institutional capacity. Capacity may also refer to financial resources. 

Within the scope of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, adequate capacity in each of its forms is particularly important in order to ensure that decisions are taken based on an adequate knowledge base and to enhance coordination between different communities of practice involved.
