Uwe Ulbrich in Conversation with National Geographic
Building bridges between different scientific fields, different communities of experts, is key to protect individuals from future extreme weather events and climate change.
Working out the right degree of resilience for infrastructures against floods, setting up the best plans to develop communities' capacities for adaptation...Starting from New Orleans' Hurricane Katrina event, these are some of the challenges outlined by meteorology scientist Uwe Ulbrich, and Professor at the Freie Universität Berlin.
