PIK will host a side event at the Africa Climate Week 2021

Based on the results of the Ghana District Study, the side event will discuss ways towards risk-informed adaptation policy-making and actions for climate-resilient development.

Under the title “From science to action – climate risk analyses to support adaptation policies and planning at a local level in sub-Saharan Africa”, the event seeks to identify best practices and design principles for better integrating climate information into adaptation actions on a local and regional scale.

The event will provide two impulses from a practitioner and a scientist highlighting their views on the need of climate information for adaptation planning. Afterwards, a round table will bring together representatives from science, international organizations, governments and practitioners working around the topic of agriculture in rural areas in northern Ghana and beyond. At the end, we reserved a lot of time for your questions. For the full agenda, please click here.

Date: Sunday, 26 September 2021 from 4.00 pm to 6.00pm (GMT+3/EAT)
