The Tumerington Case - a role-playing exercise

Eucerus, Tumerington. Where climate change meets conflict, displacement, politics, and humanitarian action. Fortunately, Tumerington is not a real country. It is a role play designed to foster creative thinking around the opportunities and challenges for designing an Anticipatory Action plan in a conflict-affected context. The scenario offers an ongoing non-international armed conflict between the Eucerus Freedom Fighters and the Government of Tumerington. The exercise can be played in groups, with 11 unique “roles” available do be distributed among participants, including government, NGOs, military, civil society, Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement and UN actors. In these roles, participants will conduct a collective exercise to identify key challenges for anticipatory action, identify a functional approach and determine actions that could be beneficial in the proposed context.
