"Climate Voices on the Ground: Perspectives from Different Sectors", A Webinar Series
A webinar series in October 2022 to share perspectives and approaches to do climate science, communication, and risk management.
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.
The hub is hosting the first of two webinar series, "Climate Voices on the Ground: Perspectives from Different Sectors", which aims to give participants a better understanding of the different contexts and experiences of climate change.
We invite all interested parties to register for our first webinar series, Climate Voices, at this link: linktr.ee/MCR_ADMU.

Our second Climate Voices webinar features Dr Ma Laurice Jamero, Head of the Resilience Collaboratory at the Manila Observatory.

Dr Cuyegkeng and Ms Cementina-Olpoc will share their insights on climate risks of microenterprises.
