According to changing UN reports, the world is facing difficult times. Even in a best case scenario we need to adapt to a new landscape of hazards.
The IPCC approved and accepted Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate at its 51st Session held on September 20 - 23, 2019, stating that ”we are in the race between two factors. One is the ability of our ecosystem to adapt and the other is the pace of climate change”.
In the fall of 2018, the EU H2020-project ESPREssO concluded after investigating, among other issues, the ongoing integration between "climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction".
ESPREssO aimed at contributing to a new strategic vision to approach natural risk reduction and climate change adaptation, thereby opening new frontiers for research and policy making.
To achieve thise goal, the project structure was built upon the central role of three main challenges to be addressed in order to propose ways to mitigate differences, to identify gaps, and to overcome the boundaries among different topics:
The main final products of ESPREssO are the Guidelines on risk management capability and a Vision Paper on future research strategies in order to better define the research priorities following the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
After the presentations (one hour), there will – after a short break with sandwiches and refreshments – be opportunities for comments and questions.
