From hazard to risk

Source(s):  American Meteorological Society (AMS)

This publication is the summary of a workshop which brought together expert scientists from climate sciences, statistics, health, agriculture, and economics to discuss how to move beyond traditional climate indicators describing climate-related hazards to more impact-relevant indicators for quantifying climate risk.

The workshop highlighted among others that :

  • Indicators can be powerful communication tools to reach important stakeholder groups (focusing on health, agriculture, and the investment sector.
  • Risk indicators should help with monitoring how various entities (e.g., communities, countries, companies) are prepared for more frequent and severe extreme climate hazards in the future.
  • To provide both accurate and robust risk estimates for climate change, new indicators should meet technical criteria, such as being measurable, monitorable, validatable, and transferable, to be scientifically relevant in addition to being salient, legitimate, and credible for the target audience.
