RAIN Workshop: climate change and weather modelling

AlanOconnorThe workshop on Climate Change and Weather Modelling, which took place in Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) on 9th November 2015, provided a platform to discuss the most probable extreme climatological phenomena affecting European infrastructure. 

The workshop involved the participation of 58 attendees, including a broad range of critical infrastructure professionals, including academics, infrastructural managers and consultants, from the sectors of transportation, communication and energy.

The event culminated in a panel discussion involving both the event presenters and interested stakeholders. This discussion assessed the impact of extreme weather and forecasting on disaster response planning, the selection of mitigation measures to combat impacts of a changing climate, and suggested the next steps in disseminating the findings of the RAIN project to the relevant decision makers across Europe.
