The Raising Risk Awareness initiative assesses whether climate change has contributed to extreme weather events such as droughts, floods and heatwaves in several countries of East Africa and South Asia.
One of the project's goals is to increase the understanding of climate change impacts and help communicators spread accurate information. They have released free-to-use resources such as infographics, films, images, papers and more to help communicate the Raising Risk Awareness initiative.
You can view the toolkit here.
The Walker Institute works at the grassroots in these countries, communicating with vulnerable communities on the importance of risk awareness and equipping them with the tools to help become climate resilient societies. Check out our projects to see what we're up to.
