Early Warning – Early Action Systems for transboundary threats

Digital Room 2

How can we ensure that our governance systems are “fit for purpose” to cope with increasingly interconnected and devastating climate impacts that reach far beyond national and regional borders? This session will explore how governments and other stakeholders can better use artificial intelligence and other remotely-sensed early warning data to effectively tackle transboundary climate hazards, including droughts, floods, crop pests and pathogen outbreaks. The discussions will build on findings from a research partnership led by TMG and the IGAD-Climate Prediction and Applications Centre (ICPAC) exploring the scientific linkages between climate change and transboundary threats such as desert locusts, with a focus on the eastern Africa and Horn region.

The session is co-hosted by TMG and ICPAC, with support from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development ( BMZ).
