Spatial Risk Management and Climate Impact Research

CHANGES (2011- 2014)

Changing Hydro-meteorological Risks as Analyzed by a New Generation of European Scientists

The CHANGES network (Changing Hydro-meteorological Risks as Analyzed by a New Generation of European Scientists) will develop unadvanced understanding of how global changes (related to environmental and climate change as well as socio-economical change) will affect  the temporal and spatial patterns of hydro-meteorological hazards and associated risks in Europe; how these changes can be assessed, modeled, and incorporated in sustainable risk management strategies, focusing on spatial planning, emergency preparedness and risk communication. The main objectives are (1)provide high-level training, teaching and research in the field of hazard and risk management in a changing environmental context to European young scientists; (2) reduce the fragmentation of research on natural processes, and (3) to develop a methodological framework combined with modelling tools for probabilistic multi-hazard risk assessment taking into account changes in hazard scenarios (related to climate change) and exposed elements at risk. IRPUD is responsible for the coordination of WB 3 which is about risk management and supervises a PhD student and PostDoc.
