Tackling risks arising from climate change, environmental degradation and natural hazards in an integrated manner is one of the greatest challenges of today – notably in development co-operation. These risks significantly influence the resilience of systems and communities thereby often threatening the poorest disproportionally.

There are several tools to integrate climate, environment and disaster risk reduction (DRR) aspects into development co-operation to safeguard development achievements. One such tool is the Climate, Environment and Disaster Risk Reduction Integration Guidance – CEDRIG. It helps development and humanitarian actors to reflect whether existing and planned strategies, programmes and projects are at risk from climate change, environmental degradation and natural hazards, as well as whether these interventions could further exacerbate these challenges.

The guidance is composed of three modules: CEDRIG Light will help you to decide whether a detailed risk and impact assessment must be conducted or not. It is proposed to be conducted individually or by involving only a few relevant stakeholders for maximum two hours. In case of a ‘yes’, CEDRIG Strategic will help you to analyse strategies and programmes, while CEDRIG Operational will be applied for projects. Both are proposed to be conducted in a participatory manner by organising a workshop with all relevant stakeholders.
