The Anticipating Climate Hazards Contest

Do you have ideas on how to build resilience to climate change and enhance early warning systems? if so, check out the new Climate CoLab Anticipating Climate Hazards Contest -
Deadline: Friday, Feb 10, 2017 at 18:00:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

In collaboration with the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Resilience Initiative: Anticipate, Absorb, Reshape (A2R), this contest invites solutions on how the world should prepare and respond to climate extremes and climate hazards. A2R is a global, multi-stakeholder initiative, launched in November 2015 to accelerate action on the ground to enhance climate resilience for the most vulnerable countries and people by 2020.  

Building resilience and capacity to understand and effectively respond to climate extremes and climate-induced disasters is necessary to adapt to climate change. A first step is to increase the ability to adequately anticipate and respond to climate hazards and extremes. There are many actors working on building climate resilience, including national governments, UN agencies and other international organizations, local authorities, researchers, the private sector, and civil society, among others. Many of these actions must be scaled-up, reinforcing synergies and reducing overlaps, while ensuring that together, these different actions are having the positive impacts needed. 

We are calling for a wide range of innovative and practical solutions – on the local, national and international levels – that can help strengthen early action in vulnerable communities around the world.

The contest will then be open for proposals until early February 2017, at which time we would call upon you in your Judge capacity to evaluate the proposals submitted to the platform. We will be in touch with guidance as those dates approach and as the contest progresses we will provide you regular updates on the way forward and your respective roles as judges and advisors.
