The Global Conflict Risk Index workshop on climate, conflict and short-term forecasting
September 22, 2022
Karen Meijer and Nina von Uexkull will contribute to a workshop at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) Disaster Risk Management Knowledge in Ispra, Italy.
This year’s annual Global Conflict Risk Index (GCRI) workshop will have two sessions focused on (i) short-term forecasting for situational awareness and conflict prevention and (ii) the climate change-conflict nexus.
Close cooperation between policy makers and scientific experts is key to design tools for anticipating, monitoring and addressing conflicts. Therefore, the workshop will aim to facilitate dialogue among scientific experts and policy-makers.
The event is organized by the European Commission’s Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre (DRMKC), in collaboration with the Conflict Prevention and Mediation Support Division of the European External Action Service (EEAS) and the Foreign Policy Instrument services (FPI) of the European Commission.
Participation in this event is by invitation only. The audience will consist of professionals from the scientific/academic world and the EU institutions. For those who would be interested in attending the workshop, please contact us at the following e-mail: [email protected]
