Abstract

PURPOSE: The purpose of this paper is to better link the parallel processes yielding international agreements on climate change, disaster risk reduction, and sustainable development. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH: This paper explores how the Paris Agreement for climate change relates to disaster risk reduction and sustainable development, demonstrating too much separation amongst the topics. A resolution is provided through placing climate change within wider disaster risk reduction and sustainable development contexts. FINDINGS: No reason exists for climate change to be separated from wider disaster risk reduction and sustainable development processes. RESEARCH LIMITATIONS/IMPLICATIONS: Based on the research, a conceptual approach for policy and practice is provided. Due to entrenched territory, the research approach is unlikely to be implemented. ORIGINALITY/VALUE: Using a scientific basis to propose an ending for the silos separating international processes for climate change, disaster risk reduction, and sustainable development.
