Extreme Weather Events in Europe - Launch of new EASAC report | 28.11.13

 

In recent years, Europe has suffered a rising number of extreme weather events - from unprecedented heat waves and droughts to record-breaking floods, wind storms and freezes. These events do not respect borders and it is vital that Europe's policy makers come together to devise common strategies to help mitigate the physical, human and economic costs. This new EASAC report based on a comprehensive collection of scientific data from the last 20 years provides just such a rallying call.

The new EASAC report on "Extreme Weather Events in Europe" will be officially launched on Monday, 2 December in Brussels.

Please have a look at at the event invitation!

We are looking forward to an interesting discussion.
