In my role in the chair of the Advisory Board, I attended the 2nd IMPREX general meeting in Crete in September. It was great catching up then with the fantastic team that has been assembled for IMPREX and seeing all the progress that has been achieved. More recently, I have been reading through the first round of project reports, getting even more acquainted with what the twelve months have delivered.
What makes this project unique in my mind is the way it ranges from basic climate science, through impacts, right to working directly with decision-makers. This is essential if the risks (and potential benefits) posed to Europe by climatic variability and change, and floods in particular, are to be well managed.
