Needs, Priorities, and Partnerships to Advance Flood Research and Impacts
GEWEX is interested in establishing a new project as a Global Flood Crosscutting Initiative that crosses several activities within the GEWEX Hydroclimatology Panel (GHP) and link with other GEWEX panels. Initial directions and thoughts about this initiative can be found in Samadi et al., 2021, The Role of GEWEX in Moving the Needle on the Resiliency of Society to Flooding, GEWEX Quarterly, Volume 31, Quarter 4, 2021, pg 11–12 .
The goals of the flood crosscutting initiative are to overcome barriers in flood modeling and observational architectures, and climate change and land use change impacts on flooding risk and consequences across current and future periods. The results of this first Flood CC workshop will allow the GEWEX Hydrometeorology Panel (GHP) to propagate flood modeling and research knowledge from one region to the other and synthesize results at a global scale.
