RISK KAN EWS Webinar 28/10/21 15:00 CEST: Climate hazards & complex humanitarian crises
This webinar will discuss the interplay between climate hazards and complex crisis with a view towards understanding global humanitarian crises combined and a focus on complex crises such as the ongoing conflict in Yemen. Steve Penson and Nic Parham from ACAPS will be presenting.
As a humanitarian analysis organisation, ACAPS aims to provide relevant, timely and independent analysis to responders of humanitarian crisis including the UN, international NGOs and Red Cross societies. In recent years ACAPS has contributed analysis to a wide range of crises ranging from climate related disasters such as Hurricane Idai, to short term responses such as the Beirut explosion, to longer term humanitarian crisis such as the crises in Yemen and Tigray. In all of these responses there are a wide range of drivers and impacts ranging from political economy, food security to climate change, and in all cases it is important to understand how these subjects are interconnected.
Through better understanding the wider human and physical drivers and impacts of complex crises, there are opportunities to deliver better informed analysis which in turn can better and more effectively influence decision making both at an operational and strategic level.
Discussions on how climate impacts have often exacerbated crises and resulted in reduced coping mechanisms and an increase in population displacement will be raised, alongside how analysis of complex crisis could be enhanced through further understanding of climate related impact.
