Water and Climate Shocks: From Local Events to Global Impacts | InnoCentive Challenge

Water and Climate Shocks: From Local Events to Global Impacts | InnoCentive Challenge | food security and climate change | Scoop.it
The Skoll Global Threats Fund is seeking proposals that outline a methodology to identify early indications of when a water or climatic event in one location, such as floods, droughts, or heatwaves, may trigger direct and indirect impacts elsewhere in the world (for example: large scale migration, food insecurity, social unrest, infectious disease). This methodology would ideally allow for near-real time monitoring, and a method for triggering alerts for when indications are identified.
This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.
