This series of outreach events aims to inform stakeholders about the possible impacts of and options for managing the risks of climate extremes and disasters by region, as assessed in the IPCC Special Report.

Each two-day event will cover a range of topics, including:

- Observations and projections of extremes
- Impacts, losses
- Risk management options
- Towards and sustainable and resilient future

The events are informed by the IPCC Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation, published in March 2012.
