“Climate risk” is a comprehensive concept spanning socio-economic and bio-physical elements – identified by the ARA as a vitally important area of learning and collaboration. The insights from this shared learning process on understanding climate risk enhance learning across both climate research and climate action communities.
The shared learning process brought together local, national and international organisations from within the ARA's diverse global newtwork with three objectives:
- Catalyse peer-to-peer learning on climate risk assessment and management
- Generate a shared understanding of challenges that ARA can work to overcome and good practices ARA must amplify
- Forge regional networks and communities of practice on understanding climate risks
The successful design and implementation of climate action and adaptation initiatives relies in large part on an inclusive understanding of climate risks that encompasses the insights and experiences of many different types of stakeholders.
