Abu Dhabi, The United Arab Emirates
It is a contribution to the Talanoa Dialogue and will provide inputs to the key questions that the dialogue is addressing:
In the spirit of Talanoa, the Forum fosters inclusive, participatory and transparent dialogue on these questions in the context of climate adaptation and resilience.
Talanoa is a traditional word used in Fiji and across the Pacific to reflect a process of inclusive, participatory and transparent dialogue. The purpose of Talanoa is to share stories, build empathy and to make wise decisions for the collective good.
IIASA senior research scholar Stefan Hochrainer-Stigler was invited to give a keynote speach on modelling of climate risk and possible metrics for climate adaptation. Furthermore he was an invited panelist for investigating how to establish an African learning platform for climate risk insurance.
The lessons learned during the Forum will be used to establish a closer relationship between key stakeholders in climate change adaptation and to identify ways for a closer collaboration.
