It is well established that climate change impacts can pose risks to peace by undermining human security and increasing the impacts of other drivers of conflict and fragility. Thanks to a growing availability of high-quality data and computational capacities, our ability to enhance the understanding of the complex, context-specific impacts of climate change on current and future security risks is also growing. Providing practitioners with data-driven insights about the full range of those impacts is crucial in order to improve anticipatory action to avoid and reduce those risks.
Guiding questions of this session include:
- What are the underlying quantitative approaches of the platform (AGRICA) and how are the climate information products intended to be used?
- How suitable is this platform to improve anticipatory action?
