Literature review on aligning Climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR), Dr Tommaso Natoli et al., International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, IRC, CAROLINE, UCC, December 2019.
Resolutions and reports adopted at the international level in the last few years provide that a more consistent and sustainable alignment between climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) is today considered a global priority. The present review offers a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of existing knowledge on the topic and looks into an array of potential avenues for solutions from the literature that could be relevant for law and policy at the national and sub-national level, as reported in the literature.

Views from the Ground: Perspectives on Localization in the Horn of Africa, Kimberly Howe, Jairo Munive, Katja Rosenstock, Tufts University, Feinstein International Center, Save the Children Denmark, October 19.
This study seeks to understand the nuances of localisation processes in three countries in the Horn of Africa-Kenya, Somalia/Somaliland, and South Sudan. Considering that the majority of publications focus on international actors when analysing the localisation of humanitarian action, the authors placed local actors at the centre of their research project. They look at the determining factors of a localised response and the factors that allow or prevent local actors from delivering an effective, high quality response.
