Risks and Resilience: Emerging challenges in a post Paris world

JBA is pleased to be attending the first Royal Meteorological Society Climate Change Forum tomorrow.  This will bring together the UK climate science community and is a unique chance to discuss current needs, research challenges and policy requirements in an interdisciplinary.

Rachel Brisley, Associate Director, is co-chairing a round table with Professor Rowan Sutton, University on Reading on ‘Risks of Weather and Climate Extremes’.  The purpose of this session is to discuss the potential impacts of current and future weather and climate extremes and the emerging science needs that are required to support decision and policy makers in building resilience.

Sarah Jones, Catastrophe Risk Analyst, is presenting a poster on ‘Assessing the financial impact of climate change on flood risk using catastrophe models’ which will introduce JBA’s UK Climate Change Flood catastrophe model, and explain some of its potential applications to help users better understand the possible impacts of climate change on flood, and financial, risk.
