×G6. Natural hazard and crisis preparedness, responding and adaptation

Climate change has affected the severity, intensity, frequency, and pattern of the crises such as heatwaves, flooding, cyclones, drought and fire weather, and compound events. The complexity, interconnectivity, and uncertainty in the social, technological, environmental and organizational systems affect the consequences of the crises. It is evident from the recent events in Australia and worldwide that our current capabilities, policies, procedures and assets will not be enough to respond to crises effectively and on time. This session focuses on models and case studies that assess risks, exposure and vulnerability as well as planning for adaption, preparedness and responding to crises.

We also encourage researchers to provide submissions focusing on

  1. Risks, exposure and vulnerability in different sectors (such as transformation, supply chain, cities, etc.)
  2. Planning for adaption, preparedness and responding to crises
  3. The necessary capability and preparedness of first responders, defence and other organisations to respond to crises
  4. Modelling to support decision makers in responding to crisis
  5. Use cases and methodologies of coupled climate and hazard models

Key topics: Disaster preparedness, Responding, Vulnerability and risk, Resilience and adaptation
