In 2022, the direct impacts of climate change – such as droughts, floods, and wildfires – have become impossible to ignore.

However, these impacts can also have knock-on effects which are less immediately visible: effects that cross borders and continents, escalating through security relations, international trade, financial markets, international aid operations or migration.

Such complex chains are set to have increasingly significant impacts on our societies as the world experiences the effects of a changing climate.

Gaining an understanding of them, and the ways in which they can be mitigated and adapted to, is crucial as we move into an uncertain future.

Taking place over two days during the COP27 climate conference, the Cascading Climate Risks Virtual Pavilion, hosted by Chatham House’s Environment and Society Programme, offers the opportunity to explore these emerging dynamics with experts in the field.
