The Raising Risk Awareness (RRA) initiative ran from 2016–2017, working with the Climate & Development Knowledge Network (CDKN). Using WWA’s state-of-the-art attribution science, RRA helped African and Asian societies to understand the role of climate change in extreme weather events and prepare for future risk by assessing whether climate change has contributed to extreme weather events, such as droughts, floods and heat waves in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, India, and Kenya.
Friederike Otto ECI’s unique approach uses very large ensembles of simulations of regional climate models to run two different analyses: to represent the current climate as it was observed, and to represent the same events in the world that might have been without human-induced climate change. This methodological approach is supported by its widespread use … Continue reading “Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford”
Maarten van Aalst The Climate Centre is a specialist reference center for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and helps the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and other partners reduce the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events on vulnerable people. It will use its humanitarian network to … Continue reading “Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre”
Geert Jan van Oldenborgh The KNMI team contributes statistical analysis tools and climate data built in the KNMI Climate Explorer for event attribution. This public web application has fits to standard and extreme value distributions with co-variates that are optimised for extreme event attribution. The group collects and updates observational data in real-time at the … Continue reading “Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute”
World Weather Attribution (WWA) is an international effort to analyse and communicate the possible influence of climate change on extreme weather events, such as storms, extreme rainfall, heatwaves, cold spells, and droughts. Recognising society’s interest in reducing the human, economic, and environmental costs of weather-related disasters, WWA delivers timely and scientifically reliable information on how … Continue reading “World Weather Attribution”
