Climate science and humanitarian dialogue
Date & TimeFriday, 25th of March 2022; 13:00 - 15:00 CET
The Permanent Missions of the Arab Republic of Egypt and the United Kingdom to the United Nations in Geneva, and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), with the collaboration of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), invite you to a webcast event to discuss the latest IPCC AR6 WG II report and its humanitarian implications.
The IPCC AR6 WG II confirmed that “climate change is contributing to humanitarian crises”. We have now entered an era in which the climate is recognized not just as an environmental or political issue, but as a humanitarian issue. The event will focus on the implacations of climate science for humanitarians, unpacking the key IPCC findings and their implication for the world.
The event will be hosted by Mr Jagan Chapagain, IFRC secretary general, H.E. Mr Simon Manley, ambassador, Permanent Mission of the United Kingdom, and H.E. Dr Ahmed Ihab Gamaleldin, ambassador, Permanent Mission of the Arab Republic of Egypt.
The importance of early warnings will be part of the discussion and Kara Devonna Siahaan, head of the Anticipation Hub, will be presenting at the anticipatory action breakout group, moderated by Katharina Stasch, the German ambassador to the Permanent Mission of the UN, during the in-person session.
