INFOGRAPHIC: Making informed decisions to prepare for extreme weather events – India case studies

The Raising Risk Awareness initiative brings together scientists, vulnerability experts and knowledge brokers to understand the role of climate change in extreme weather events to help prepare for future ones.

It allows scientists to make quantitative statements about how climate change has altered the risk of extreme weather events occurring. This can help decision-makers and the public to prioritise adaptation solutions and reduce vulnerability; this infographic sets out why attributing extreme weather events is critical and how the process works, featuring examples of the Chennai and Phalodi case studies. It was presented by the Raising Risk Awareness team at the fifth International Conference on Climate Services, Cape Town, 2017.
