The MPE CDT staff member, Tristan Pryer, received funding for Researcher Links Trilateral Workshop

The Climate change initiative for adaptation, Resilience and Mitigation (CCIARM) has recently been set up between the University of Reading, the National Institute of Space Research in São Jose dos Campos, Brazil and the Centro de Matemática in Montevideo, Uruguay. This initiative is funded by the Newton Fund and, in the first instance, will bring together 42 world leading researchers from each of the participating countries in São Jose dos Campos in March 2017.

The workshop aims to establish a common forum for discussion of mathematical techniques and physical modelling applied to adaptation and resilience relative to weather variability and climate change, as well as to other causes of natural disasters. Our specific focus is on sudden wind storms, floods and periods of droughts.
