Weather extremes: Climate attribution since the Paris summit

Tuesday 11th December 2018

Increasingly, scientists are detecting the fingerprints of climate change on extreme weather events, including heatwaves, floods, droughts and storms. Understanding the real-world picture is of vital importance for policymakers, including those working on issues such as loss and damage within the UNFCCC, and for businesses and insurers.

ECIU will present a new analysis of climate event attribution since the Paris summit, updating a report presented last year.
