Save the date! Upcoming conference 13-14 June 2019 in Malmö, Sweden 

In 2014 Malmö City was badly flooded, and the urban flooding hazard is generally expected to increase from now on. This may happen both because of global warming, leading to more intense rainfall, and increasing urbanization, making cities more vulnerable, or a combination of the two. There are thus very good reasons to develop methods, tools and measures to improve our preparedness and make our cities more “climate-proof”.

At the conference Cities, rain and risk, results from four research projects will be presented, divided into the following themes: 

  • End-user engagement, tailored tools and public perceptions
  • Rainfall and environmental observation and forecasting
  • Urban flood modelling and forecasting
  • Water management, nature-based solutions and climate adaptation 

Research, innovation and implementation 
The conference addresses both practitioners and experts dealing with urban flooding hazards in some way, as well as academics and scientists in the field. This will include two days with both evidence from research and discussions on how we apply the research in our everyday lives.

Before the conference, a so-called City Climate Cafe will be organized by INXCES in Malmö on 10-12 June. You can find more information about this here

Stay tuned, we will send out a more detailed program soon, and this event will be updated. We look forward to seeing in you in Malmö in June

UPDATE 28/3-2019: A website is available with a complete program and link for registration. Find it here.
