Praise or this book...
“This guide is an easy-to-use resource that provides guidance or NGO sta and partners alike to tackle the issues o disasters and climate change. Not only does it provide 10 common sense principles or integrating disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation in practice, it highlights the needs o vulnerable populations including children, so that they can be part o the process o building disaster and climate resilience.” 
Dr Nick HallHead o DRR and CCA, Save the Children
“For vulnerable communities in the Pacic that are already experiencing the proound impacts o disasters and climate change, this guide is a antastic resource. Not only does it recognize the importance o involving local people to build on their existing strengths to prepare or disasters and adapt to climate change, it provides practical guidance or identiying high-risk groups (including children, young people, women, older people, and those with disabilities) and how to work with them eectively. Congratulations on a great resource.” 
Maria Tiimon,Pacic Outreach Ocer, Pacic Calling Partnership, Edmund Rice Centre
“While others still nd it dicult to climb out o their silos and blink in the sunlight, the civil society organisations and INGOs that use these rigorously produced ‘good enough’ guidelines will come much, much closer to providing a ully integrated approach to disaster risk, climate change and livelihood enhancement. Once again ECB has produced a winner!” 
Dr Ben Wisner,Aon Beneld UCL Hazard Research Centre, University College London
