19 December, 1-2 PM GMT / The Raising Risk Awareness (RRA) initiative uses the latest science to assess whether climate change has contributed to extreme weather events such as droughts, floods and heatwaves in several countries across East Africa and South Asia. We will explore how climate scientists and communicators can work together to improve understanding of climate risks, encourage a better informed public debate, and help NGOs, donors, and policymakers make better adaptation decisions.​​ Co-organised by BRACED and the Raising Risk Awareness project
