In July 2021, when Henan was hit by a heavy rainstorm, Inner Mongolia Lao Niu Foundation and One Foundation jointly launched the project "Research and Practice of Natural Disaster Response Strategies under the Background of Climate Change". Through cooperation with research institutions and expert teams such as the Institute of Agricultural Environment and Sustainable Development, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Innovation Research Center for Risk Management, Beijing Normal University and other research institutions, based on typical cases of natural disasters such as the massive flood in Henan Province, this paper explores coping strategies for social organization emergencies adapting to climate change in the context of global warming. The project is based on practical case analysis to analyze the adjustment and improvement of public participation strategies and disaster response strategies under the condition of climate change. From the aspects of "prevention, resistance, avoidance, reduction and rescue", we will comprehensively sort out and explore disaster response plans to adapt to climate change, hoping to provide guidance for social forces to participate in disaster prevention and reduction and relief work. Through the construction of the platform, the public will be educated on the risk of natural disasters, popularize the knowledge of disaster prevention and reduction, enhance the public's scientific cognition of natural disasters, enhance the risk awareness, and strengthen the ability to adapt to the impact of climate.
