About

This webinar is the first in the series “Climate Voices on the Ground: Perspectives from Different Sectors”. Learn more about the other two webinars:

My Climate Risk (MCR) is a lighthouse activity of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP). This aims to develop and mainstream a ‘bottom-up’ approach to regional climate risk, which starts with a better understanding of local contexts and the requirements of decision-makers. Ateneo de Manila University, through the Ateneo Institute of Sustainability (AIS), now hosts one of the Asia-Pacific hubs of MCR. Consistent with the aims of MCR, the ADMU Hub wishes to bring people’s experiences on the ground to the fore, and to highlight the perspectives of different stakeholders and sectors on their experiences of climate change and how they are using climate information in addressing climate risks, particularly in Southeast Asia.
