Event details

On July 11 and 12th, the IGDC and Africa Network at York will host a workshop, ‘Cyclone Idai: response, recovery and future risks.’ The focus is on disaster planning, climate adaptation and energy infrastructure networks. Recent events in Mozambique provide an opportunity to understand multiple risks and vulnerabilities to extreme weather events and assess future planning approaches in the aftermath of Cyclones Idai and Kenneth. In this workshop, participants will collaboratively assess the ways that existing vulnerabilities to disasters are related to energy provision and use. Understanding how energy generation, provision and use leads to vulnerability—in addition to understanding how energy is used to recover from disasters—is critical to enhancing future resilience.

This is a closed event, if you would like further information on this initiative please contact Joshua Kirshner ( directly.
