The Canadian Water Resources Association is presenting a free webinar.
A practical approach towards probabilistic flood risk assessment in a changing climate
Flooding, as a major natural disaster worldwide, threatens human lives and causes billions of dollars in damage each year. Increases in the intensity and frequency of extreme precipitation, rain-on-snow events, and storm surges due to climate and land use change can exacerbate flood events. Therefore, accurate flood risk assessment, through proper representation of flood hazards, vulnerability and exposure, is crucial for the design, planning and management of societies and infrastructure. In this webinar I will discuss some of the observed and projected impacts of climate and land use change on hydroclimatic extremes and then present a probabilistic flood modelling framework integrated with a risk assessment module to characterize flood risks.
