BONN, GERMANY: The Summer Academy on World Risk and Adaptation Futures sought to build capacity and create networks for real-world impact, emphasize a stronger focus on drivers of future risk for risk reduction policy and action, foster collaboration between policymakers and practitioners, and provide them with information on future risk trajectories and future trends regarding vulnerability to disruption by climatic and other stressors.

The Summer Academy programme was targeted towards decision makers and practitioners in UN processes implementing the SDGs, the Paris Agreement on climate change, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and the New Urban Agenda (NUA), as well as towards those who require information support for implementation efforts at the regional, national and municipal levels. The Summer Academy convened from 24-28 September 2018, in Bonn, Germany, with a particular focus on urbanization. It was jointly organized by UN University’s Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) and Munich Re Foundation, in partnership with the UNFCCC.
