16 Dec 2008
Description

Darshani de Silva, Environmental Specialist at the World Bank, writes, 'It is essential to ensure consistency between adaptation and development priorities. One of the key responses to achieve this is to integrate long-term climate risks into short and medium-term development policy decisions by mainstreaming measures for adaptation and adaptive capacity in development planning.' Darshani finds, 'There is no doubt that integration of climate risks into development is a crucial step in preparing and facing the challenge of climate change. Especially in developing countries such as Sri Lanka, this will be of great importance for climate proofing development planning, assistance and implementation.'
