Webinars - How you can use flood hazard data in risk assessment, climate change analysis and resilience management.

Nov. 2, 2020
This autumn, join us for an exciting set of webinars about the new climate adaptation and risk assessment tools hosted on, and how they can help you.

With increased occurrence and more frequent flooding, storms and extreme weather, your role as a city stakeholder, in a municipality, an urban planner, as part of the  local community, and in insurance, utility and property companies, involves taking informed decisions about your climate risk assessment and adaptation and resilience strategies.  

This includes analysis of current and future hazard and risk, climate change impacts and the quantification of the damage and financial losses of a flood in a specific place.

We understand that for many professionals being clear about what flood tool to use, linked to your specific objectives is often not an easy decision.

A set of webinars this Autumn will help you to understand the types of tools you could consider. We’ll demonstrate how you can do this through exploring a set of tools and talking to the scientists and flood specialists themselves about a set of state-of -the-art specialist flood tools, showing the diversity of the tools available to you, and helping you decide which types of tool work better for the challenges you need to address.

The webinars will cover flood risk and predictive models, flood forecasting, damage and loss assessment and climate change adaptation for urban areas.
