IIASA Energy, Climate, and Environment Program Director Keywan Riahi will participate in a panel discussion about weather extremes at a Science Talk jointly organized by the Austrian Ministry of Education, Science and Research and the newspaper Kurier.    

Floods, droughts, heatwaves – there have always been extreme weather events. However, their rapid increase over the past years has alarming consequences for people around the globe. Are weather extremes becoming the new normal? What can be done to counter the current trend? Which climate objectives are still realistic?  

Riahi will join Elke Ludewig, Head of the Sonnblick Observatory, ZAMG - Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik and Michael Wagreich, Department of Geology, University of Vienna to explore these issues at a Science Talk jointly organized by the Austrian Ministry of Education, Science and Research and the newspaper Kurier. Bernhard Gaul, Politics and Climate editor, Kurier will moderate the discussion. 

This is a hybrid event.
