The working group (WG) comprises members from different countries and specialisations who have had a long-standing cooperation experience with European, African, and international agencies on risk assessment. The WG identifies synergistic impacts from multiple risks as well as counter-strategies for building resilient societies against extreme events. The group will examine the conceptualisation of different disciplinary risk concepts, explore the multi-risk pathways, and examine opportunities to increase multi-risk resilience to extreme events. The WG will have two workshops and a DFG round table. The outputs from these forums will
- identify an agenda for research in East Africa;
- identify transdisciplinary collaborative research projects and early career individual projects on multi-risk assessment in extreme events; and
- form an Advisory Committee for overseeing the Collaborative proposal preparation.
