30 September 2021 online workshop – Risk Governance of cross-border severe weather events under climate change: from Vaia storm, to Germany/Belgium Floods and beyond

In occasion with the Pre-COP26 to be held from 30 September to 2 October in Milan and in view of the COP26 in Glasgow in November, the TRANS-ALP project aims to contribute to the discussion on the impacts of climate change with an online workshop focused in particular on forecasting and management of extreme meteorological events, starting from some exemplary cases that occurred in recent years.
The ultimate goal of the workshop is to raise awareness and encourage debate, even among different actors at European level, on these issues.
The event will be held online via Zoom on Thursday 30 September 2021 from 9:00 to 12:00. Participation is free, upon registration.

The event is included in the "All4Climate - Italy 2021" Program, aimed at promoting 2021 as the year of Climate Ambition: https://all4climate2021.org/

Due to the increasingly high temperatures, the intensity of weather phenomena is also increasing in South Tyrol

This trend is set to continue, with a forecast of rising temperatures from 1 ° C to 4 ° C by the end of the century as explained by Dieter Peterlin meteorologist of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano. The latter forecast is the most problematic since the development of thunderstorms depends on various factors, such as air humidity or wind and a rise in temperatures presupposes an increase in energy in the atmosphere and the consequent development of violent thunderstorms in the Alpine arc.

The Trans-Alp project, seeks to monitor all these parameters to provide practical tools and methodologies for the prediction of cross-border impact and risk assessments to public authorities and stakeholders, so as to prevent the damage that these violent weather events could inflict on environmental and socio-economic systems in the Alpine region.

Trans-Alp partners BFW and Eurac Research invite you to the “GreenRisk4ALPs Mountain Forest Conference”, which will be held online on June 28 and 29, 2021!

The Interreg Alpine Space project GreenRisk4ALPs is supporting risk-based protective forest management as part of an integral and ecosystem-based natural hazard risk management in the Alpine Space. After three years of fruitful scientific collaborations and continuous exchange with practice and policy, we would like to share our insights and developed decision support tools with you and invite you to discuss and connect to move forward together at managing our mountain forests sustainably as an effective protection measure against natural hazards. Participation in the GreenRisk4ALPs Mountain Forest Conference is free of charge and open to everyone.
Please find out more at: https://www.alpine-space.eu/projects/greenrisk4alps/en/home

We are looking forward to welcoming and meeting you virtually in June!
