Round table discussion of DKN on societal resilience and climate extremes
November 15 - November 16, 2018
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?.
Invited participants from research, industry, institutions, and authorities will discuss among other things the following issues:
What are the main challenges that extreme events pose for different sectors?
What are the main obstacles to social resilience regarding extreme events?
The round table is organized by Markus Reichstein and Dorothea Frank from Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry and will take place within the framework of the German Committee Future Earth (DKN) working group on “Societal resilience and climate extremes”.
