About the event
On Monday, November 16, 2020, at 8:30 AM, the ISSP and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis organise the Interactive Social Simulation Helping Societies Address Cascading Climate Risks from Outside Geopolitical Boundaries: Case Study on the Arctic (Interactive Policy Simulation), as a part of the Canadian Science Policy Conference 2020.
Climate change impacts are both global and regional in nature, and don’t stop at geopolitical boundaries. Societies, however, react in very geopolitical ways, often having a better understanding of how climate change will impact their geopolitical regions without as clear a view of how external stressors will play out and influence local outcomes.
This session will use a policy simulation as an international/transboundary foundation, grounding participants in a timely real-world complex situation where they can explore how globally relevant climate change impacts (Arctic) occurring beyond a geopolitical region, as well as the economic and social responses to these impacts, might cascade into its geopolitical space.
