Raising Risk Awareness

The Raising Risk Awareness (RRA) initiative ran from 2016–2017, working with the Climate & Development Knowledge Network (CDKN). Using WWA’s state-of-the-art attribution science, RRA helped African and Asian societies to understand the role of climate change in extreme weather events and prepare for future risk by assessing whether climate change has contributed to extreme weather events, such as droughts, floods and heat waves in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, India, and Kenya.
