Responding to risks of extreme events to advance climate change adaptation

The EC funded PEARL project demonstrates solutions to government’s and water practitioners on adaptive risk management measures for coastal cities against extreme hydro-meteorological events (with the focus on floods and storm surges). In this event the science behind the PEARL framework and its application in case study cities across Europe, Asia and the Caribbean will be presented. Bridging the science to practice will be demonstrated in the form of roadmaps where presenters will discuss the way forward to building resilience and adapting to climate change in cities such as Hamburg, Genova, Rethymno, Greve, Les Boucholeurs, Marbella, the Islands of St Maarten and St Lucia, Ayuthaya and Bangkok in Thailand and Tainan in Taiwan.
