LUNCHTIME SEMINAR WEDNESDAY 9 MAY 2018
'Risk Modelling for Climate Change and Sea Level Rise'
Climate change is set to increase asset exposure to flood inundation hazards New Zealand along rivers and coastlines. Our ability to anticipate where, when and how assets are exposed determines whether we can avoid or mitigate potential future damage and loss. Risk tools can provide this information for specific locations by analysing hazards, assets at risk and asset vulnerability to hazard exposure. This presentation will provide insight into how risk tools and data in New Zealand are currently being developed and used to identify how future climate change and flood inundation hazards may impact people, buildings, infrastructure and land use.
Speaker: Ryan Paulik, Hazards Analyst, NIWA
