Date: Sunday, March 13, 2016

What role does climate change play in altering the characteristics and impacts of extreme weather and climate events? What approaches exist for reducing vulnerability and exposure and for managing impacts and disasters associated with extreme events? Scientists discuss the findings of a new international report that brings together, for the first time, expertise in climate science, disaster risk management, and adaptation. This video includes explanations of the information in the IPCC 2011 report on managing the risks of extreme events and disasters and the adaptation from scientists who worked on the report.
