  • The year 2017 has seen a devastating series of hurricanes across the Caribbean, Central America, and the United States—Harvey in August, Irma and Maria in September, and Nate in October. The first three caused devastation along their paths and reached the United States as Category 4 hurricanes. Inevitably, there has been discussion on the role of climate change in increasing the severity of tropical storms generally and this series of hurricanes specifically.

    We address the causal attribution of severe and extreme weather events to climate change and the associated health consequences. This attribution is of primary scientific interest but comes with evident political implications.

    The event is specially organized to cover the following aspects of the Hurricane disaster which will be very informative and interesting session ;

    CAUSAL ATTRIBUTION OF EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS
    FREQUENCY AND SEVERITY OF HURRICANES
    ATTRIBUTION AND LIABILITY
    ATTRIBUTING HEALTH IMPACTS

    So don't forget to attend the session as grasp the crucial knowledge as much as you can.
