Cascades: resilience to climate risks that cross borders


26 June 2023

The Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House), London, UK and online

In 2023, the direct impacts of climate change – such as droughts, floods, and wildfires – have become impossible to ignore. Climate impacts are not confined within national borders however, but can cascade across and between continents, escalating through security relations, international trade, financial markets, international aid operations and displacement of people. Our societies will increasingly be impacted through these complex chains.

Drawing on four years of interdisciplinary research, this event will explore emerging recommendations on how governments in Europe and beyond can prepare to meet the challenge of cross-border cascading risks. It will both propose and explore concrete ways for policymakers and societies to build capacity to manage such risks in the years ahead.
