WATER HAZARDS: HOW FLOODS AND STORMS IMPACT US AND HOW WE IMPACT WATER RESOURCES
Tuesday, 25 April, 09:00–10:00

 

RISC-KIT participants will lead this session which you can join by live stream.

Coastlines are often impacted by storms, with low-lying coastal areas being particularly prone to flooding. This risk is expected to increase in a warmer world, as sea level rises and storms become more intense and frequent. In this press conference we will hear about a 300-year storm record and how it can help people living in European coastlines better prepare for future storms. Another team will present a map of global coastal flood hazards, which will make it easier for coastal populations to understand their flood risk and how it might change in the future. Moving from the coast inland, we’ll hear about another water-related hazard: threats to freshwater resources. The third presentation at this press conference will focus on how drought and wars in the Middle East have affected water bodies in the region. Finally, the fourth presentation will describe the results of a study published in Nature Geoscience. The results of this study remain under embargo until the start of the press conference.
