Climate information and disasters: two interviews

During the launch of the new Climate and Society publication, A Better Climate for Disaster Risk Reduction, we had an opportunity to sit down with Jan Egeland, who is the co-chair of High-level Taskforce for the Global Framework for Climate Services, and with Madeleen Helmer, from the Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre. In the brief interviews below, the two discuss the value of forecasts and other types of climate information to the planning and preparations work of humanitarian organizations.
