Resumen

QUINTERO-ANGEL, MAURICIO; CARVAJAL-ESCOBAR, YESID  y  ALDUNCE, PAULINA. ADAPTATION TO VARIABILITY AND CLIMATE CHANGE: INTERSECTIONS WITH RISK MANAGEMENET. Luna Azul [online]. 2012, n.34, pp.257-271. ISSN 1909-2474.

Given the increase in the frequency of extreme hydro-meteorological events associated with climate variability and/or climate change, and to the increased vulnerability of human societies before those hazards, a higher interest in reducing greenhouse gases by the scientific community appears. This article highlights the importance of adaptation for disaster risk reduction associated with the weather, the climate and their intersections with risk management. It is concluded that adaptation and risk management should be integrated with a comprehensive view to reduce society's vulnerability and gets articulated with mitigation initiatives to reduce the causes that generate climate change, thus reducing the existent risk and avoiding the social construction of new risk factors.

Palabras clave : Adaptation; hazard; climate change; risk management; climate variability; vulnerability.
