Coping with hydro-meteorological extremes

10th – 14th September 2012, University of Battambang
Coping with hydro-meteorological extremes in South East Asia with focus on the Mekong River Basin

Extreme climatic events such as storms and severe droughts are expected to increase in many regions worldwide according to global climate scenarios as published by IPCC. South East Asia traditionally belongs to the most affected regions by extreme climatic events occuring regularly and resulting in disasters causing the loss of hundreds of  thousands of lives each year and costs of billions of dollars. The international symposium and training course Coping with hydro-meteorological extremes has the objective to contribute to this emerging challenge by bringing together the expertise of scientists, policy makers and professionals to develop approaches for interdisciplinary research towards an effective risk assessment and management.
