Disasters caused by natural hazards and climate change impacts are occurring more frequently, and are becoming more costly than ever before. The causes of vulnerability to disasters are socially, economically and environmentally intertwined and result in differentiated impacts across regions and social groups. Disasters are also becoming more complex and uncertain because of the interactions between increasing populations, poorly planned urbanisation and economic developments, and environmental degradation. The acceleration of climate change is expected to increase the frequency, magnitude and severity of hydro-meteorological disasters, and this in turn will lead to exacerbated impacts of such events. The increasing complexities of global environmental and socio-economic change and the interconnectivities between processes at global, regional and local scales requires greater nation and community resilience to disasters. While there has been a proliferation of research on socio-economic resilience to disasters and climate change, a better utilisation of the concept of governance within disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) as part of an integrated analysis is urgently required. The research presented in this thesis aims to identify and examine governance strategies that can better support the integration of DRR, CCA and adaptive governance (AG), in policy and practice, in order to build the resilience of nations and communities. Resilience is used as the overarching theoretical concept for linking the different areas of work on DRR, CCA, and AG. DRR is a systematic approach for risk reduction, while…
