Digital solutions for climate change adaptation: 

How can we use technologies for environmental risk and crisis management?

26 February 2021, 14:00 – 16:00 C.E.T., online (via Zoom)

Digital technologies can be useful tools for understanding environmental hazards associated with climate change. The frequency and severity of extreme weather events is likely to increase and risk managers in various organisations might face new challenges. Technologies could provide opportunities to improve how environmental risks and crises are handled at different scales but they could also jeopardise safe and efficient management.
