3rd International UICCA Conference: Climate Risk Assessment and Mitigation Approaches - Experiences from ANADIA Niger and Other Initiatives

OTHER ORGANIZER(S): Institute of Biometeorology - National Research Council (IBIMET-CNR)

MAIN HOST(S): Politecnico di Torino

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 11 Mar 2016 Location: Italy (Torino) Venue: Castello del Valentino, Viale Mattioli 39

Decentralization in Tropical Africa puts decision-making in adaptation and risk reduction in the hands of those who are directly experiencing climate change and disasters. Local plans are multiplying at municipal and village scale. Nevertheless, these tools, built on local/indigenous knowledge only, have still several limits: climate trends are not considered, measures priority in case of multi-risk (as drought and flood) are badly developed, expected effects of measures implementation are rarely known. As a consequence, plans implementation has little impact in creating safer communities.

Scientific-technical knowledge and tools have proven to be effective in enabling local decision-makers to make better informed decisions. Climate services (WMO), risk assessment and mapping tools as well as monitoring and early warning systems provide appropriate information for risk reduction and adaptation but are not widely applied at local scale.

ANADIA-Niger Project (2013-2015) has invested in strengthening capacities in supplying climate services and developing climate risk analysis and evaluation locally.

The Conference aims to present, compare and discuss the outcomes attended so far with other experiences having integrated local and technical knowledge for a better comprehension of climate risks in the Tropics.
