Climate Extremes & Impacts

Extreme climate and weather events, associated disasters, and emergent risks are becoming increasingly critical in the context of global environmental change. They are a potential major threat to reaching the Sustainable Development Goals and one of the most pressing challenges for future human well-being.

Herrenhausen Conference 2019
Extreme events such as droughts, heatwaves, heavy rain, and violent storms are now part of our daily news. Risk-aware development towards the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals can significantly reduce societal risks associated with climate extremes. Therefore the Paris Agreement to combat climate change, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Disaster Risk Reduction strategies such as the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 have to be brought together. more
