Parallel session C: CORDEX for impacts

Thursday 28 September 9.30-12.30 CEST

Parallel session C1: Societal  impacts

Thursday 28 September 9.30-11.15 CEST

Location: SISSA Main Auditorium

Session co-chairs: Natália Machado Crespo and Michelle Simões Reboita
Rapporteurs: Shaukat Ali and Natalia Bautista Blanca 

This session focuses on high impact regional phenomena and implications for urban areas, health, renewable energy,  infrastructure (buildings and transport), disaster management, insurance issues, and land use and land cover change and management strategies (including agriculture and forestry). It also includes studies on the attribution of extremes and risk assessments and event-based downscaling at high resolution for process-based understanding of event drivers.
