Mitigation of climate induced natural hazards (MITCH)

Objective

MITCH will bring together the various research institution and user representatives, including insurers, with a leading involvement in the mitigation of natural hazards with a meteorological cause. The aim will be to assist planning and management for these events, by evaluating the state of research, and to match that with both users perceptions and needs as to what the research community can provide. A primary focus of the CA will be on flood forecasting and warning, but it will also include other flood related hazards, such as landslips and debris flow. It will also look at longer-term climate hazards, such as drought, and the possible impact of climate change on the frequency and magnitude hazards. The CA will be conducted through a series of 5 workshops and an active website for exchange of views and evaluation of best practice.
