In recent years, Europe has suffered a rising number of extreme weather events - from unprecedented heat waves and droughts to record-breaking floods, wind storms and freezes. These events do not respect borders and it is vital that Europe's policy makers come together to devise common strategies to help mitigate the physical, human and economic costs. This new EASAC report based on a comprehensive collection of scientific data from the last 20 years provides just such a rallying call.

A launch event for the new EASAC report opened by Professor Sir Brian Heap, President of EASAC.

Scientific findings and recommendations will be presented by the chair of the EASAC working group Professor Øystein Hov, Norwegian Meteorological Institute, Norway.

After the presentation there will be a panel discussion of experts and stakeholders.

A light lunch will be available from 11.30 am. The event will be followed by a coffee reception.
