Bringing INnovation to onGoing water management - a better future under climate change - Indicators of scenarios of risk caused by extreme weather events at the six research sites
Resilience Management & Governance
“Workpackage 4 analysed the risk introduced by climate change scenarios at the six research sites. Workpackage 5 deals with measures to reduce some of these risks. The purpose of this report is to establish indicators of risk caused by extreme weather events at the six research sites. They can be seen as warning and action indicators will be suggested to manage conflicts generated by socio economic activities facing extreme climatic events.
Indicators can be of different types: climatic change; hazard changes; any sort of vulnerabilities change, etc. These indicators, by presenting a certain deviation from a reference level, can trigger the implementation of a certain measure. Indicators may also be a measure of the degree of implementation of an action concerning climate change (CC) adaptation. Indicators link workpackage 4 with workpackage 5, where the risks are treated. Chapter 2.1 list the indicators developed for the six researches sites. Chapter 2.2 presents a brief justification or context for their selection.”
