Attribution

When an extreme-weather event occurs, people often ask: was climate change to blame? For decades, scientists have answered that question in only general terms, but in recent years advances in climate attribution have allowed researchers to answer it in much greater detail, event by event.

To encourage work to make communities more resilient, the World Weather Attribution scientific partnership that includes the Climate Centre quantifies how, and whether, climate change has influenced the intensity and likelihood of a particular extreme-weather event. Here is their latest study (photo left).

Report

Loss and damage

An important development on the first day of the COP meeting came when delegates agreed on the operationalization of the loss and damage fund accepted in principle last year. The Climate Centre shortly afterwards published a summary of the latest findings on loss and damage from Working Group II.

The report was supported by the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance and endorsed by technical experts on risk management from the Warsaw International Mechanism executive.
