    23. 23 13/11/2011 6. Conclusion

    24. 24 13/11/2011 Conclusion DRR is a key component of climate change adaptation and powerful way to reduce the relief needs DRR is a major concern for the EC and several financial instruments are available in this field Dipecho approach is very relevant but mainly limited to promotion, pilot operations and capacity building Need to hand-over Dipecho achievements to local and national authorities and to development operations Need to better capitalise the know-how developed and the good practises through exchange of information, networking
