Anticipating crises and taking early action in fragile and conflict affected states
Early and anticipatory action is a crucial part of strengthening resilience and reducing vulnerability to climate change. However, in fragile and conflict-affected settings, this work remains limited in scale. Urgent work is needed to reconsider mechanisms for financing climate related disaster risk reduction and adaptation.
The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) and ODI host an event at COP27 in Sharm el Sheikh: ‘Anticipating Crises and Taking Early Action in Fragile and Conflict Affected States’. High-profile speakers from across a range of sectors provide concrete steps on how to improve links between development, humanitarian, and climate work, to reduce the disaster and climate risk of vulnerable populations living in fragile and conflict affected settings.
The event is chaired by Dr. Rebecca Nadin, Director, Global Risks and Resilience, ODI.
