On Tuesday 23 January the “Re-imagining anticipatory climate governance in the world’s vulnerable regions” (RE-IMAGINE) project will be launched in Utrecht. The project is led by Joost Vervoort (Utrecht University) and Aarti Gupta (Wageningen University & Research), is a joint effort between Utrecht University, Wageningen University & Research, the University of Oxford and the CGIAR Programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) Future Scenarios Project, and has been made possible by the BNP Paribas Foundation’s “Climate Action Call”.
The interactive launch event will revolve around urgent and timely questions surrounding the investigation of climate foresight as a governance intervention. How can the potential of foresight be better understood as an intervention for improved climate adaptation, particularly in the countries most vulnerable to climate change? We would like to use this opportunity to kickstart an interdisciplinary and intersectoral network and to collaboratively work on a research agenda, (special issue) publications and funding opportunities.
The afternoon will start with project leaders Joost Vervoort (UU) and Aarti Gupta (WUR) presenting the project and team. This will be followed by reflections on the global context of the project from two international and senior climate foresight and climate governance scholars. The second part of the afternoon will be an interactive session to harvest your research and policy interests and then connect you to the different communities working on climate adaptation: governance and foresight researchers, policymakers, civil society and the private sector. In order to foster collaborative action the RE-IMAGINE project team will report back to you in the following months, giving all participants access to an overview of communities, interests and shared opportunities.
