Climate risk management

This report contributes to the knowledge base for the management of climate risk to build economic resilience in semi-arid regions by analysing the main challenges to climate risk management in semi-arid zones, and identifying areas and sectors in which climate risk management represents a challenge in Africa and Asia. It also suggests new research directions, and recommends that policy makers and private sector actors should give greater consideration to the climate risk management dimension.
