Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Adaptation in Agriculture Sector in Sri Lanka

Agriculture sector in Sri Lanka is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. The impacts occur due to both changes in the climate pattern and extreme climate-induced events.  Climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction have vital roles to play in increasing the resilience of the sector. The overall objective of the study is to understand the linkages between disaster risk management and climate change adaptation for reducing losses and damages incurred by the agriculture sector due to climate related disasters. The study also intends to develop a methodology for assessing losses and damages for agriculture sector due to climate related impacts.
