Thanks, Saleem. We hope to do more on this - certainly more is needed! Thanks for IIED's help with the debate....
Seems to me this desire to pull in students, and to educate using games, should go together, no? How about getting these climate games into schools at all levels?
Good governance- rights based approaches - flexible learning and empowering local citizens to exercise their rights - no on size fits and a focus on community based adaptation - new accessible finance-are all adaptation prerequisites to help the poorest and most vulnerable to adapt
@EGI. I am not sure if this is innovative, but setting up student-led disaster/climate change groups is one I have come across in the Horn of Africa. Here a group of students (across age levels) form a leadership team; are trained on the basics of DRR/CCA and then they work in the school to educate others and take real action. This has involved school disaster management plans that have then been taken to local government for action/funding. I am sure there are many others.
