About this Event
Climate change will impact development plans, projects and activities at local, national and regional levels. To prepare for and adapt to changes in climate and to mitigate future climate change, people, communities, governments and other institutions will need germane information, tools and resources to succeed in these efforts.
Screening for actual and expected climate risks and opportunities in sectors such as health, agriculture, water, energy and transportation, and considering greenhouse gas emissions information can help stakeholders better understand how climate change may affect development plans and investments and inform decision-making for climate risk management and climate-resilient development.
- What climate risk management is
- Why and how climate risk management is applied in development planning and activities
- Resources and tools for climate risk management
- Examples of climate risk management in practice
- Lessons learned from climate risk management in development
This discussion will be guided by a series of questions, and we strongly encourage participants to share what they are doing in the area of climate risk management, pose questions to one another, and identify opportunities for collaboration.
Who it’s for
Climate change and development practitioners and academics, and the broader community interested in the topic.
