Join us on Tuesday 20 July from 14:00 to 15:00 CEST for the our next webinar Assessing the future humanitarian risk and vulnerability using climate change and population projections within INFORM framework.

In this webinar series, we are engaging with societal partners to look at how the climate crisis can affect international cooperation, development and resilience.

The INFORM Risk Index is a global indicator-based disaster risk assessment tool developed by JRC, which supports humanitarian crisis management decisions. In this work, we, in collaboration with JRC, expand the index to include projected climate change related hazards to generate changes in the index, alongside changes in population, and estimate what level of vulnerability reduction would be required to offset increasing risk. The extended index has been used to identify the remote hotspots affected by climate change for the countries involved in EU external action partnerships. INFORM International partners such as OCHA, FCDO, IFRC and IOM have recognized the benefits of such a tool for horizon scanning and global humanitarian risk monitoring.

The keynote speakers of the webinar are Sepehr Marzi from the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change (CMCC) and Andrew Thow from UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN-OCHA). The session will be moderated by Jaroslav Mysiak from CMCC, who leads RECEIPT’s work on international development.
