Citizens’ Climate Jury: How to make 1 billion people safer from disasters?
Organised by the Risk-informed Early Action Partnership (REAP), this event explores how to make 1 billion people safer from climate-related disasters. It aims to build support for strengthening and scaling up existing efforts on early warning-early action while encouraging deliberative discussion on the practical steps that can be taken to do so.
This virtual event invites the audience to join an interactive Citizens’ Climate Jury. Tasked with deliberating on how to make people across the world safer from climate-related shocks and stresses, the Jury (all registered participants of the event) will interact directly with ‘expert witnesses’ drawn from the humanitarian, climate and development communities.
