Summary:

Recent extreme events, such as heatwaves, droughts, floods as well as the increasing
number of forest fires and other natural hazards have raised public awareness regarding
the influence of the climate change and their environmental and socio-economic
impacts. Such natural hazards also have an effect on infrastructures and human
activities, cost millions of euros and cause human casualties. As such, CLIMRisk
project 'Climate change adaptation measures in the management of natural and
environmental risks' aims at assessing climate change impacts which is of utmost
relevance for policymakers, decision-makers, and stakeholders, as a valuable tool in
developing suitable adaptation measures, which hopefully will reduce their harmful
effects at a regional scale.
