Second Tray - Assess the likely hazard

How might weather hazards be affected by climate change?

The second stage of the evaluation is assessing the hazards that are likely to be exacerbated or introduced associated with climate change. Each urban environment will be exposed to a mixture of different hazards, depending upon their location. For this reason, this tray is divided up into six bins representing different hazards. The tools in each bin are specific to the modelling and assessment of the particular hazard. The hazard bins and tools can be found in the bins below.
