Cascading Climate Risks: Perspectives From Around the World


1 November 2021

16:00 - 17:00 CET


This event will take place during COP26 as part of Chatham House’s Climate Risk and Security Pavilion.

Through a series of engaging TED-style talks, this roundtable will showcase examples of cross-border climate risks from regions around the world. Including stories and case studies from the Hindu Kush Himalaya, Caribbean, West and Central Africa, South-East Asia and the Pacific, and Europe – the talks will cut through the complexity of climate risks and reveal their impacts in real terms.

Bringing together an expert panel, this solution focused discussion will explore:

  • Implications of cascading climate risks for policymakers: How a step-change in regional and global cooperation on adaptation could better manage the impacts of these risks on our economies, environments and societies. 
  • The opportunities for regional or global adaptation programmes that maximise the co-benefits shared adaptation action could bring.
  • Critical bottlenecks that are holding back progress to strengthen global resilience to these sorts of risks, and the solutions we need to implement across scales.
