Objective 1: Evidence and knowledge on
effective disaster and climate resilience approaches are generated and shared
for improved policy and practice. Information management systems aid in the sharing and
accessibility of risk information for decision-making, and policy application
and promotes open access to information. The CDI jointly addresses disaster and
climate risk and is being developed as a fit-for-purpose innovative approach to
management of drought risk in conjunction with partners in academia.

Objective 2: Risk-informed development is
adopted at national, sub-national, and community level using integrated,
inclusive, and participatory approaches. Information availability and the institutionalization of
monitoring and forecasting tools support the uptake and application of disaster
and climate risk information in policy and technical decision-making. Policy
formulation support strengthens the integration of DRM in formal institutions
and supports coordination across levels of Government.
