Cascade: Understanding interdependent climate change risks using a game approach
5 February 2020, 16:00 to 17:00 Please note: this event has passed
Bush House North East Wing, Strand Campus, London
Speaker: Dr Sabine Undorf (University of Edinburgh)
Abstract: Although urgent, climate change adaptation is a complex task, especially for infrastructure with its interdependencies. The identification of climate risks requires dialogue between stakeholders with their respective knowledge on assets and vulnerabilities in addition to knowledge of the climate hazards.
Dr Undorf will talk about a serious-game based approach in which this was addressed by co-developing and playing a serious game, driven by a sequence of hazard events such as heatwaves, coastal flooding, drought and others, extracted from climate model projections for the 2050s.
She will present the game approach and conceptual differences to other types of games used for climate, and reflect on its success with regard to communicating climate risks, identifying cascading impacts, and enabling cooperation.
This seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.
