Loss and damage in a changing climate: Games for learning and dialogue that link the Hyogo Framework for Action and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change

The purpose of this paper is to examine the role of games for improving communication, spurring learning, and improving decision-making capacity about climate risk management amongst diverse stakeholders.The document introduces participatory games as a promising approach to convey key elements and relationships involved in climate and disasters and briefly outlines four case studies of game-enabled processes for learning and dialogue on climate risk management.

The authors conclude that games offer a serious approach to meaningful and sound communication for many different stakeholders – indeed thought leaders and policy makers from some of the world’s most influential and far-reaching organizations have embraced games as a promising approach to bridge the communication divides in an array of contexts. 

This document is an input paper of the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction.
