dc.description Chapter published in Climate Risk and Vulnerability: A Handbook for Southern Africa en_US
dc.description.abstract Southern Africa is susceptible to extreme weather events – particularly floods, droughts, fires and large storms, which have cost an estimated USD 10 billion in damages between 1980 and 2015 (based on data from EM-DAT). Integrating climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction through a risk-management approach is important to help reduce future losses from climate extremes. en_US
