Against the background of the July 2021 flood, the KAHR project will host a virtual scientific conference from 29.-30. of June 2022. Researchers of different disciplines working on impacts and management of flood disasters or on issues of climate resilient reconstruction are invited to contribute to the conference or participate online. 

 

1st KAHR Science Conference

The KAHR project invites you!

The flood event of July 2021 caused by heavy rainfall in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate is considered as one of the largest flood disasters in Germany since decades. The affected regions and municipalities are now facing enormous challenges. The research project KAHR (Climate Adaptation, Flood, Resilience) - funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) - aims to provide scientific support and advice on the processes of reconstruction in the aftermath of the flood disaster.

In this context, there will be a Science Conference from 29th to 30th of June 2022 (online) for researchers of different disciplines working on impacts and management of flood disasters or on issues of climate resilient reconstruction.

Call for abstracts!

For the KAHR Science Conference, we invite your expert contributions in the form of oral presentations. Contributors on topics that advance research in flood-affected regions or that are related to the July 2021 flood disaster are invited to submit an abstract on the topics of climate adaptation and climate resilience, risk-based approaches to spatial planning, flood modeling and protection concepts, protection of critical and sensitive infrastructures, risk Communication and risk perception as well as damage modeling and risk assessments.

Here, you can submit your abstract with a maximum of 500 words until 30.05.2022 at.
