Building Resilience to the Impacts of El Niño event

15th May 2018

The Royal Society, London

In response to the 2015-16 El Niño event, the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Department for International Development (DfID) developed the Understanding the Impacts of the Current El Niño Event research programme, with the aim of addressing the need to have a better understanding of the impacts of the El Niño event in low and middle income countries.

Through 14 individual projects and four synthesis projects, the programme investigated the effects of the El Niño on livelihoods, food security, ecosystem services, disease vectors and key infrastructure across 12 affected countries.

The Building Resilience to the Impacts of El Niño event will present the lessons learned from this large multi-institution programme, bringing together policymakers, practitioners and researchers to ensure these findings contribute to the development of practical approaches to building resilience to future El Niño events.

A draft agenda with full details can be found on the event website

Further details and registration is available on the University of Oxford website.
