PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to better link the parallel processes yielding international agreements on climate change, disaster risk reduction, and sustainable development.Design/methodology/approachThis paper explores how the Paris Agreement for climate change relates to disaster risk reduction and sustainable development, demonstrating too much separation amongst the topics. A resolution is provided through placing climate change within wider disaster risk reduction and sustainable development contexts.FindingsNo reason exists for climate change to be separated from wider disaster risk reduction and sustainable development processes.Research limitations/implicationsBased on the research, a conceptual approach for policy and practice is provided. Due to entrenched territory, the research approach is unlikely to be implemented.Originality/valueUsing a scientific basis to propose an ending for the silos separating international processes for climate change, disaster risk reduction, and sustainable development.
