Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction studies are facing their proper limits from a decade. First ones are planning with long term methodologies, often unable to plan reactive measures; second ones are, otherwise, developing coping tools not able to face an evolving risk situation. This paper suggests an integration model between the methodologies and studies of both these two fields, starting from an extended application of Italian local emergency planning. The purpose is based on a revision of climate changing perception, thought to focus it as an ongoing catastrophe.
