Societal Resilience and Climate Extremes
January 11, 2018
1st Working Group Meeting: Societal resilience and climate extremes
Climate extremes are one of the major future threats to society, as recognized by several international bodies. Yet, it is difficult to conceive the question: “Which instabilities, tipping points and risk cascades are most likely emerging from the interaction of future climate extremes with ecological and societal systems?” Key goal of this working group is to envision how far the German and international scientific community may come in the next 5-10 years to answer the above question.
Organizers: Markus Reichstein, Dorothea Frank
Venue: WissenschaftsForum, Berlin, Germany
