According to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report, approximately 3.3 to 3.6 billion people live in a highly vulnerable situation due to climate change. Natural disasters are estimated to have caused $280 billion (USD) in global losses in 2021, highlighting the severe socio-economic losses on people’s livelihoods and the urgent need to take action. Since climate vulnerability including risks, sensitivities and adaptive capacity vary spatially, to take action, both local and regional governments have a critical need for resources to better map and interpret them. This session aims to address these challenges by bringing together policymakers, entrepreneurs and scientists to discuss the latest developments in climate risk mapping and assessments, showcasing products such as the OECD’s new IPAC dashboard with climate-related hazard indicators, Israel’s climate risk mapping work on a municipal level and city case studies from around the world.
