ECMWF | Reading | 15-17 March 2017
The principal objective of ANYWHERE is to enable society as a whole and the main civil protection agencies to respond more rapidly than today to extreme climate and weather events, and to better cope with the high social, environmental and economic impacts related to these extremes. The Project will establish a pan-European platform on extreme climate risks that will enable to identify, in a number of geographic regions, critical situations that could lead to loss of life and economic damages. Such early-warning should enable to improve protection measures and, in case of catastrophic situations, ameliorate the coordination of rescue operations. The platform will therefore serve as decision-making tool for various authorities when faced with a situation of crisis, and will provide state-of-the-art early warning systems to help exposed populations avert disaster. This meeting is an opportunity for the project partners to review the status of the project and plan future activities.
The meeting starts on the morning of Wednesday, 15 March 2017 and finishes at lunchtime on Friday, 17 March 2017. Partners are expected to provide posters relating to their forecast products and the case study sites. There will be a drinks reception on the Wednesday evening and dinner on the Thursday.
