Tackling climate change in fragile states and protracted crisis situations

An IIED Debates online event

Many of the world’s most climate-vulnerable countries also suffer from protracted humanitarian crises linked to conflict, displacement and state fragility. As climate change worsens it will become increasingly difficult for humanitarian agencies to address the needs of people affected by conflict and disasters unless majors reforms are made in the way that they work.

This IIED Debates online event on Monday, 18 October will ask what needs to change and what role humanitarian agencies can play in tackling climate change in fragile states and protracted crisis situations.

This webinar will use the Zoom video conferencing platform. For those who have not attended a Zoom webinar before, please read this guide to participation as an attendee
