This brief presents experiences from a project undertaken by Gorakhpur Environmental Action Group (GEAG) and the Institute for Social and Environmental Transition-International in technical collaboration with the National Institute of Disaster Management (NIDM) on integrating disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in sub-national level development planning with support from Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN). The project is implemented in one district in each of the three project states: Gorakhpur (Uttar Pradesh), Almora (Uttarakhand) and Puri (Odisha). It demonstrates the integration through application of the Climate Resilience Framework (Tyler and Moench 2012) and the Shared Learning Process in each state. In the brief we discuss the overall approach and salient features of mainstreaming DRR-CAA in development plans at district level and implications for the State and National level development planning.
