What are the fundamental elements of building people’s resilience to extreme weather? How can we compare and evaluate specific interventions that build resilience to those events?

This event will explore these questions, among others, whilst presenting the findings of the Royal Society’s latest policy report ‘Resilience to extreme weather’.

The report considers the impact of extreme weather on people worldwide, using new maps to show where people may be more exposed to extreme weather in the future. Measures to defend against extreme weather are examined as are processes and principles that can help societies do more than simply survive extreme weather; how they can develop resilience.

The event will highlight both general principles and specific interventions that can be implemented to reduce the impact of floods, droughts and heatwaves. It will explore the need for pre-emptive investment in building resilience; reporting of financial exposure to extreme weather; links between disasters, climate change, environment and development; and the role of scientific evidence.

An overview of the report will be given by members of the project working group, Professor Peter Head and Rowan Douglas. This will be followed by a discussion among policymakers, practitioners and the audience including perspectives from Professor Virginia Murray and Professor Stephen Sparks, among others.
