CDKN talks to Dr Tom Mitchell, Head of Climate Change at the Overseas Development Institute and Coordinating Lead Author on the IPCC SREX report, about the findings of the report, and how these have been interpreted for regional policy makers by the CDKN report series “Managing Climate Extremes and Disasters: Lessons from the IPCC SREX Report”.  Dr Mitchell shares both the significance of the IPCC report and explores how developing countries are adapting to climate extremes already.
