How to adapt to changing weather eXtremes and associated compound RISKs in the context of Climate Change (X-RISK-CC)
There is scientific evidence that climate change is likely to induce more frequent or intense weather extremes in the Alps with compound and cascading effects on the environment, humans and the economy. This may induce unexpected complex, long-lasting or even irreversible consequences. owever, the knowledge and management of cascading impacts and risks under climate change are still insufficient.
Therefore, X-RISK-CC aims to support risk managers and policy makers in addressing the compound risks of climate change extremes by developing new knowledge, local risk management actions and transnational guidelines. The project partners thus explicitly address the need for common knowledge, actions and solutions to manage extremes in the context of climate change.
