NH33C:
Natural Hazards and Climate Change: Relation, Vulnerability, Risk, and Adaptability II Posters


Session ID#: 8950

Session Description:

The magnitude and frequency of natural hazards such as droughts, hurricanes, landslides, heatwaves, forest fires, tsunamis, and floods are strongly affected by climate change. Often the case, the severity and recurrence of natural disasters, at local, regional and global scales, have been cited as corroborative evidence for climate change.

This session aims at bringing together experts from various disciplines who are investigating the relation between climate change and natural hazards, assessing the vulnerability of various natural and anthropogenic systems to natural hazards associated with ongoing and projected climate change, or exploring the adaptability measures to past and future rates of change.
