Climate projections point towards more frequent and intense heat waves, cold spells, droughts, floods and other extreme events in a warmer Earth. These projections, together with the recent sequence of extreme events, highlight the need for better risk assessments for decision-makers and the public.

The WMO co-sponsored World Climate Research Programme, in partnership with UNESCO, is bringing together researchers and re-insurance experts to discuss metrics and methodology of risk assessment for climate extremes. The workshop is in Paris, France, on 27-29 September 2010.
