Adaptation, a crucial issue for companies

Extreme weather events are increasing in frequency and intensity. Floods, fires, heat waves, precipitation and droughts are disrupting human societies, but also the value chains of companies, which must anticipate and adapt to ensure they can absorb these shocks.

This training is for you if:
You want to acquire an in-depth knowledge of physical climate-related risks for businesses (drought, heat waves, floods...)
You want to bring this topic within your organization, and master the operational analysis approach OCARA (Operational Climate Adaptation and Resilience Assessment) to implement an adaptation strategy.
