    Over the past decade, economic damages resulting from natural hazards have amounted to USD 1.5 trillion caused by geophysical hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis and landslides, as well as hydro-meteorological hazards, including storms, floods, droughts and wild fires. Climate-related disasters, in particular, are increasing worldwide and expected to intensify with climate change. They disproportionately affect food insecure, poor people – over 75 percent of whom derive their livelihoods from agriculture. Agricultural livelihoods can only be protected from multiple hazards if adequate disaster risk reduction and management efforts are strengthened within and across sectors, anchored in the context-specific needs of local livelihoods systems. This webinar covered: * Institutional capacity development for DRM for resilience, food security and nutrition * Mainstreaming DRM in agriculture sector planning * Linking planning and capacity development for DRM, resilience and climate cha nge adaptation

    Concerns over water scarcity and severe water supply shortages are driving governments to find alternative solutions, including the development of non conventional water resources In this context, the application of non conventional waters ( has the potential to help countries meet increasing water demands, particularly during years of drought Moreover, through proper planning and management, NCW reuse schemes offer economic and environmental benefits The Kyrgyz Republic lacks an integrated approach to Climate Change and Adaptation ( and Disaster Risk Resilience ( in agriculture The Government is constrained in terms of resources and capacities, above all in the identification of the impact on the agriculture sector of natural hazards and in the technical knowledge required for early warning and response The scarce resources available are focused on major disasters and crises, despite the frequent occurrence of small and medium scale emergencies that have a permanent negative impact on development in the sector The country, with support from the international community, has taken steps to increase its capacity to reduce disaster risk, and to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change However, CCA and DRR initiatives have rarely applied an holistic approach to agriculture despite its importance and the threat to both the sector and the rural population represented by climate change and variables, as well as by weather extremes.
