Sectoral Brief: CDKN and Acclimatise: Agenda for Climate Action - Uttarakhand - Disaster Risk
Category: Government & Policy

Acclimatise supported CDKN India in working with the government of Uttarakhand to deliver a state-level climate change vulnerability and risk assessment (VRA), intended to support the delivery of the State Action Plan on Climate Change (SAPCC). Acclimatise’s primary role was to ensure that the scientific knowledge resulting from the VRA linked to the implementation of the SAPCC and facilitated decision-making in the state. Our team worked with a range of stakeholders including the state government, scientists, community-level organisations, research institutions and the private sector to build awareness and assess capacity for planning adaptation action. Ultimately this led to the creation of the “Agenda for Climate Action”, a set of policy briefs that enable the results of the VRA to guide climate resilient decision making in Uttarakhand, taking into account international, national and state-level priorities, as well as evidence at the community level.

This document is the sectoral brief for disaster risk.
