SaferPlaces is gladly participating for the second time to the “Climate Thursdays” webinar series, talking about Urban flood risk and adaptation challenges.
Climate change has particularly extreme effects in urban areas with flooding as an important threat to human health, activities, and assets. In view of an increasing frequency and intensity of extreme hydro-meteorological events, enhanced work to reduce exposure and vulnerability, and thus reducing disaster risk is needed at many levels. Advanced methods and tools are needed to better understand urban flood hazard and risk, and to inform decision making about flood risk reduction and adaptation planning. The webinar will introduce new developments and novel tools from ongoing research and innovation projects funded under EU H2020 and EIT Climate KIC programs.
