Register for the VIEWpoint CSSP China webinar on January 28th to learn from learn from scientists and engineers about the latest climate research and how it could affect urban environment. Gain insight into how to plan for potential changes in extreme weather events when designing city infrastructure.
What you will learn
Infrastructure of the built environment, the roads and buildings, are there for the long term and endure the endless cycle of changing seasons and the accompanying vagaries of weather and climate. Taking full account of what nature is capable of is only possible with the high-quality observations and climate models carefully developed and amassed by national meteorological services such as CMA and the UK Met Office. The use of observations to appreciate current risks, and to use scientific projections of the future climate, are the prudent approach to match action to threat and protect those expensive and enduring assets in the most cost-effective way.
Attend this webinar to hear from leading scientists and engineers on tools they have developed for businesses and decision-makers to understand for themselves the current and future climate risks, from flooding to heatwaves. These prototypes allow scrutiny of observations of the current and recent situation and access up-to-date climate projections for specific cities in China. They show the state-of-the-art results in accessible formats.
