Understranding Risk – Carabbean ... @ Barbados
May 27 – May 31 all-day

Registration ends on May 20 at midnight for the 2019 Understanding Risk (UR) Caribbean Conference!

Slated for May 27 – May 31 in Barbados, UR Caribbean will bring together representatives of government ministries and national disaster management agencies, disaster risk management practitioners, urban planners, insurance industry stakeholders, private sector organizations, academia, multilateral development banks, regional partners and donors to:

Identify gaps and needs that exist in disaster risk information
Obtain in-depth training in areas such as fiscal resilience, coastal protection, risk analytics & more
Share knowledge and best practices from analyses, studies, projects and business practices
Experience innovations from global partners that can facilitate disaster risk management processes
UR Caribbean is organized by the World Bank’s Caribbean Disaster Risk Management team, in partnership with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and the European Union (EU), and will be hosted by the Government of Barbados.

Core themes include:

Risk analytics and communication | Physical resilience | Fiscal resilience | Urban resilience | Coastal protection | Hydromet and early warning systems | Community engagement and emergency preparedness

Registration is open and free, but interested persons must register in order to attend.

May 28 – May 31 all-day

Climate change is considered by many to be the challenge of the 21st century. The urgency and severity of this challenge call for integrated ways of looking at responses to reduce the risks associated with environmental and social stressors, and ensure a secure future for humans and ecosystems. Adapting to climate change requires a coordinated and synergistic approach from a diverse range of actors across sectors, as well as questioning assumptions about the drivers of risk, vulnerability and environmental change.

A cooperative approach allows us to improve learning and knowledge exchange in order to deliver optimal solutions. Interaction and collaboration with the disaster risk reduction (DRR) community is a critical element in improving climate change adaptation (CCA), as the communities share similar goals and activities. Bringing the two groups together is particularly important in relation to the goals and targets of the three major international agreements: Paris, Sendai Framework for DRR and the Sustainable Development Goals.

The 4th ECCA builds on past conferences that took place in Hamburg (2013), Copenhagen (2015) and Glasgow (2017), and aims to:

  • Provide a space that facilitates a dialogue among a diverse range of actors from academia, government, business and community on the multiple aspects of climate change adaptation
  • Promote the communication and knowledge exchange between researchers, policymakers and practitioners
  • Find integrated solutions and inspire action
  • Support ongoing efforts to enhance the coherence and synergy between CCA and DRR research, policy and practice
  • Discuss key challenges and solutions in cities
  • Provide a stage for presenting European’s excellence on Research & Innovation for CCA
  • Inform the next European funding framework for Research & Innovation

The biennial European Climate Change Adaptation conference is convened by EU-funded projects on behalf of the European Commission.

Commission for Water Sustainability of the International Geographical Union (IGU) invites you to the conference Water sustainability in a changing world, 11th – 14th June 2019, in Bucharest, Romania. Ongoing global climate change, population growth, urban sprawl, land use modification and rapid development of economic activities are some of the most relevant facets of the transformations affecting our planet in the last decades, with significant impacts on water resources. These changes have led to alterations of the quantitative, qualitative and ecological features of the aquatic environment, threatening the sustainability of water resources. Meanwhile, extreme hydrological events, which appear to have increased in frequency and magnitude, have caused noteworthy human, economic and environmental damages, sometimes catastrophic.

Abstract
Climate prediction is one source of climate information for time scales ranging from three weeks to ten years into the future. Process-based global models initialized with the best initial conditions are the main tool used to generate climate information at those time scales. However, the process that takes a global climate forecast and converts it into action-oriented information includes many more stages that go from the understanding of the relevant climate processes, the evaluation of the forecast system, the merge with additional sources of information (both simulations from other global forecast systems, empirical forecasts and observations), and the downscaling of the information whenever required, among others. On top of this, only an appropriate user-engagement process guarantees that the information can be displayed in a form that is suitable to be employed in real-life decision making. These aspects will be addressed in this talk, focusing on how current research can and should be transferred to operational and services environments while, at the same time, climate prediction research can substantially benefit from a close interaction with operations and services.

Short bio of the Presenter
Prof Francisco Doblas-Reyes started working on climate variability at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain) in 1992, where he did his PhD. He has worked as a postdoc in Météo-France (Toulouse, France) and at the Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aerospacial (Torrejón, Spain). He was a research scientist at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (Reading, UK) for ten years. He led the Climate Forecasting Unit at the Institut Català de Ciències del Clima (IC3) in Barcelona from 2010 to 2015. He is currently the head of the Department of Earth Sciences of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS, https://www.bsc.es/discover-bsc/organisation/scientific-structure/earth-sciences) where he leads a team of more than 100 engineers and researchers working on climate and air quality modelling and analysis. Prof Doblas-Reyes is a coordinating lead author in the next IPCC Assessment Report (Working Group I) and co-chair of the World Climate Research Programme’s Modelling Advisory Council. He has been involved in problems related to climate prediction for more than 20 years and is author of more than 150 peer-reviewed papers.
