Impacts & Risk Analysis

Climate change might be a factor prompting expanded dangers of food and waterborne diseases from utilization of existing and rising natural risks. It is advantageous to create coordinated ways to deal with assess, and give logical appraisals of potential environmental change adjustment measures to illuminate chance administration identified with atmosphere and climate occasions. Cities are facing increasing risks from flooding caused by extreme precipitation events, making housing, traffic, health, ecosystems and cultural and historical heritage vulnerable. Accordingly, planning adaptation measures has become a high priority for local government authorities and property owners in cities. However, the cost-effective planning of adaptation strategies is very complicated. The integrated assessment of climate events, associated flooding, damage costs and adaptation measures requires multidisciplinary work and close interaction between professionals and decision-makers. Damage cost assessments and adaptation planning also require context-specific data and modeling, which, taken together, can be very demanding in seeking to develop a basis for solid local decision-making.
