Call for abstracts: INQUIMUS workshop on transformational risk management and Loss & Damage

Scientists and practitioners are invited to submit abstracts to the INQUIMUS ‘on tour’ workshop for Transformational risk management and Loss & Damage: What are suitable approaches for assessing climate-related (residual) risks?

Previously hosted by UNU-EHS in 2019, the INQUIMUS workshop will take place from 30 November to 2 December 2021 at International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), in Laxenburg, Austria.

Abstracts addressing the following questions may be considered:

  • What are the needs of decision advisors/makers and from a science perspective for comprehensively assessing and managing compound and systemic climate-related risks that may lead beyond adaptation limits?
  • What are the gaps in existing risk assessment methodologies in the context of climate-related risks beyond adaptation limits?
  • What are experiences that showcase the spectrum of risk management options from incremental to transformational risk management?
  • (How) can existing risk assessment methods and tools be further developed (or need to be dropped) to address these gaps? And/or must risk science transform itself?
