Cascading Climate Impacts simulation test
On March 30, 2020, the CRS team tested a new simulation developed as part of the CASCADES project. The CASCADING CLIMATE IMPACTS simulation was developed to demonstrate the effects of intersecting crises occurring worldwide. It is addressed to decision-makers; government officials, public administration, international organizations, etc.
15 people testers took part in the event moderated by Piotr Magnuszewski. In about 2 hours, we faced a number of challenges, ranging from floods and droughts to trade disruptions and social riots. Most players appreciated the fast speed of the simulation. Yet some reported feeling confused and overwhelmed. The test helped us introduce the last changes and improve the game flow.
