Because of the warm ocean currents along the British Columbia coastline, spring begins there in February. This book provides insights into impacts of climatic extremes and strategies for disaster risk reduction.

It includes studies on rainfall and temperature trends, floods and drought disasters, weather and climatic related disasters, risk assessment and responses in different ecosystems of the world. Paris Climate Agreement: A Beacon of Hope Author: Susan Hussein.

Weather and climate extremes are an inherent part of climate. There is overwhelming evidence that the climate and its extremes are changing. As extremes affect every aspect of our society, decision- and policy makers, and stakeholders are increasingly asking for reliable predictions of extremes on time scales from days to seasons and centuries.

This paper constitutes an introduction to the Special Issue devoted to the nature of extreme events, their possible evolution in a warming global climate, and the impacts that climatic extremes are capable of generating on environmental and socioeconomic sectors.
