The Raising Risk Awareness East Africa workshop was an opportunity for participants to hear more about the science around extreme weather events and to discuss how they could put this science into practice.

Participants discussed how extreme weather event attribution could support broader development plans, and how collaboration between the science community and communicators could help achieve this. Here, artist Jorge Martin captures the learnings from the event in a digitized graphic, illustrating the importance of engaging policy makers on disaster risk reduction.
