Quantifying Climate Change Risk in Humanitarian Response

This webinar, from the OCHA Centre for Humanitarian Data, explores a new Climate Change Risk Index from INFORM that quantifies the humanitarian risks associated with the climate emergency. Depending on different emission and population scenarios, the number of high risk countries may increase from 36 today to 52 by 2050, with the number of people living in very high risk countries roughly tripling from 580 million to 1.5 billion. Experts will discuss these findings and provide examples of how governments and humanitarian organizations can use this analysis and other research findings to prepare for and respond to climate-related shocks.
