FEATURE: Latest from the SREX regional events
CDKN is helping to bring the results of the IPCC Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (SREX) to audiences in developing countries through a three-part series of regional reports. The series pulls out region-specific findings about current and future impacts of climate extremes from the full SREX report, along with options for dealing with them.
CDKN is also collaborating with the IPCC, the Overseas Development Institute, Norway’s Climate and Pollution Agency and Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to organise a series of outreach events in Asia, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean in April-June 2012, which will give policy-makers, media, civil society and business representatives the chance to discuss the SREX findings in person.
