Royal Society predicts increased need for weather research

Research is needed to improve our understanding of the risks posed by extreme weather, which have to be dealt with at global, national and local levels, the Royal Society has advised.

In the report Resilience to Extreme Weather, published on 27 November, the society presents information aimed at helping those negotiating and implementing the “important international agreements” that it says will need to be reached in 2015 on disaster risk reduction, sustainable development and climate change.

The report says that “information about extreme weather should be suitable for users’ needs” and that funders should encourage collaboration between producers and users of knowledge.
